Coughing every morning for years
I am new to this forum, but saw a lengthy discussion from Aug-Oct 2007 on the subject and wondered if anyone has found any solutions.

I am a 50 year old female who has been coughing for several years.  Had allergy tests (negative) asthma tests (negative), throat examined & negative for GERD,tried inhalers, 2x daily saline wash, air humidifier (we live in very dry climate).  Now Dr. ordered a CT scan and says I have a maxillary sinus infection and recommends surgery.  Went on two courses of antibiotics and prednisone, but nothing changed.  The surgery sounds miserable, and Dr. says there are no guarantees.  I am wondering - has anyone tried acupuncture and/or has anyone heard about having an allergic reaction to some fungus growing in the nose?  

I cough every morning (sometimes painful), when I talk onthe phone, when the heater fan comes on in offices, when I sit on couch, get in car, drive on dusty road, or eat something cold.
