coughing

I see many people are coughing.
I have been coughing for 10/20 years.
They say I have GERD & Sinus Drainage, on meds for both.
Been to many many specialists, I've had sinus surgery, & surgery for GERD, & was still coughing.
But what I've finally been told from a cough phyciatrist at Mayo Clinc in Rochester, that I've been coughing so much, part of it is a HABIT.
When I feel a cough coming on, I do the relaxing breathing.    Breath from your nose (but from your stomach, not your chest), then blow out thru your mouth, but very slowly.    It will take a little while, but my cough finally is not that bad.
This helped cure my cough of many many years!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Good to see that breathing exercises are helping. Also, maintain a diary and note down and monitor your symptoms. This may help to narrow down the search if it is triggered by allergens. Giving up cigarettes will abolish smoker's cough in 90% of people. So, if you smoke try and quit.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
