Severe episodic dry cough
I can be lying in bed when all of a sudden I begin having a severe, non-productive, hacking, breathe robbing cough which goes away after a minute or two.  I get this episodically along with a persistent dry, short cough which I have had for many months.   Currently I have some kind of respiratory infection, sinus related, with NO fever, little mucus and NO flu-like symtoms.   Question:  Can post-nasal drip cause this kind of thing, because I suspect that I have this condition?  I have been doing warm salline nasal rinses which help clear the nasal passages and open up the sinus outlet tracts which "seems to  help" but does not rid me of this.   Any suggestions please?   Thanks.   Also,  its not GERD, I don't smoke and was not a smoker and I avoid noxious fumes, irritants, dust and the like.  I'm not hypeerallergenic to things.  


This discussion is related to persistant cough.
