COUGHING FIT

Since 1991 from April to November I cough non stop.    I have taken different inhalers over the years and am now
trying Symbicort.     I am under a specialist now and he has suggested I have reflux and he wants me to take
medication for this.     Since March this year I have had two courses of prednisone which seems to be the only
thing to stop me coughing.   BUT two weeks after I have stopped taking the prednisone I start coughing again.
Over the last two weeks I have had coughing fits which are uncontrollable and at the same time I am sneezing and my eyes are watering.    This can happen anywhere and on one occasion I tried to ring my husband to bring me a ventolin inhaler but I could barely speak to talk to him - he got the idea of what I was saying and came immediately to my work.  This was the first time I have had fits like this.  It now happens at least once a day and today when I was in the supermarket.   I had to leave without any groceries as I was creating a disturbance to customers.  I can feel a tickle in my throat - only on one side and then i start coughing.   Seriously I think there is something growing in my throat and tickling me.   I am becoming distressed as this is frightening not being able to breathe, coughing and sneezzing all at the same time.  Robyt

Re my question - re coughing fits - I posted an article re coughing April to November for many years and the only thing to stop this was prednisone.    Approx 6 weeks ago I started on SYMBICORT and have stopped coughing.  Everyone is shocked!!!   I cant explain how its feels.  Almost as though I have gone on holiday as I am not coughing any more. I may give the odd slight cough but its only a one off perhaps every 3-4 days and it is only like clearing my throat.   RobyT
