2 years ago I got a cronic cough. Saw a specialist and he can't see anything.
Then I noticed if I fell asleep only on the sofa and only in the evening when I wake up I feel sick and dizzy. Has anyone had this this and been treated pls.

Sounds like symptoms of reflux, particulalrly extra-oesophageal reflux (often referred to as "LPR" ) .
Refluxate (and it doesn't have to be acidic) can aspirate into the respiratory system. Chronic cough is one of th emost commonly reported symptoms of this.
Nausea on waking is also associated with reflux if your stomach wasn't empty before reclining. Dizziness (peripheral vetigo) is also a symptom.
See the chapter on extra-oesophageal reflux in the free book / website www DownWithAcid org uk
That attached graphic (adapted from rsults shown in the quoted chapter) shows prevalence of many LPR symptoms.
This makes sense as I suffer with acid indegestion and I am on tablets for this and the specialist said to take 2 gavason a night so I will try this and also not fall asleep on sofa. Thank you this has really helped. If no better I will go back to doctor to see if I can get something else. What do you take.
This use to happen to my mil. She stopped drinking diet coke and was miracously done with coughing. Not sure if that helps but it's worth mentioning . Hope you feel better.
