Hello!
Odd that you don't have GERD symptoms and he said that...I'd ask him what it was he found that made him decide...Maybe he didn't find anything significant and just had to come up with something? I'd be suspicious of an ENT doc making a GI doc's diagnosis...I know heavy sinus drainage causes an irritating cough that comes and goes...especially when allergies are in action...Have antihistamines worked? Did he tell you that you shouldn't take GERD meds like Prevacid (H2 blockers)more than 6 weeks, or you can get some vitamin and mineral deficiencies?..The pills would work if GERD was the problem...
I'd get a second ENT doc's opinion...And maybe try taking an antihistamine (over the counter) (I've found pseudofed works best)...See if that helps...

Have your doctor check you for whooping cough. If you cough so hard that you throw up, it may be that.  If you have GERD or Reflux, you may not necessarily have heartburn or chestpain. Your stomach may secrete extra acid and this will cause symptoms like coughing/choking.  If you do have GERD the medicine NEXIUM would help tremdously.
