Chronic Cough with no Medical Explanation

More than 30 years ago, I began coughing, and the cough did not stop.  Over the years, I have seen more than two dozen doctors and have done extensive testing for sinus, ear\, nose and throat and acid reflux.  About 15 years ago, I had an acid reflux test but the results were not conclusive.  Recently, I had an endoscopy and showed no signs of reflux.  I have been checked out thoroughly without any sign of a medical problem.  Still, I cough.  I have been looking into food and find that all foods cause the cough, but some foods are worse than others.  Actually, I would fare better on an all liquid diet.  Even though I am taking the maximum dosage for reflux and am very careful about what I eat, the cough persists, although it is better since I have been monitoring foods.  I have been  looking but can find no support group for this problem.  Does anybody out there have a similar problem?
