Morning Cough?

Well, it all started about a year ago. I don't really remember how, might have been after a cold or just on it's own but I started getting a "morning wet cough" this is basically how it would happen, I would wake up in the morning with a sort of stuffy nose (one nostril may be slighty plugged) but I wouldn't be coughing... however, let's say I woke up at 8:00 AM in the morning I would hear my nose sort of pop a couple times and I can sort of feel it draining, and then around 11:00 AM I would start getting a wet cough which was extremely annoying and THEN around 12:00 (give or take a half hour) it would get really bad and I couldn't speak unless I coughed, almost like there was mucous blocking my airway or touching my vocal tract. Then around 1:00 PM it would lighten up and go back to normal and I could live out the rest of my day. It's been about a year now and I have tried EVERYTHING and when I say everything, I mean everything, doctors, natural herbs, bed wedges, mold inspection, cleaning and yet it still persist. Nothing lightens it up! Some things can ease it for a little while but every day for the past year at around 11:00 AM in the morning I get the same thing and it will last sometimes for just 2 hours, sometimes for 3. It has thrown me into a depression as no one seems to know or understand what it is. I would like to point out however, that I sleep night just fine and it doesn't last forever, in fact as the day progresses it gets lighter and I just cough a couple times in the evening or afternoon but nothing really bad. It's only really bad in the late morning. I have NO idea what this is and I've talked to almost every person or professional I could. They all say it's probably Post Nasal Drip or asthma yet I can pretty much breath fine.
