9 weeks ago i did get a cold with all the classical symptoms. for a week i had wet cough with green mucous when coughing. the cold went away after a week. the cough turned into a dry unproductive one. i do also experience a tickle in my chest or throat which sometimes changes sides. left and right feeling. the cough and the tickle were a lot more some weeks ago but today even after 9 weeks it is bothering me daily.
these sensations are not there during sleep. the tickle comes like after breakfast. i am also taking now for 2 months an inhaled steroid pulmicort. for a week now i have also started with reflux meds pantozol 40mg in the morning. i have the feeling that its a bit better but still here. i did also have a chest x ray which was clear.
this tickle sensation is going on my nerves and also making me wonder what it could be. doctors have no clue. i dont have any alarming symptoms and this is the reason why i do not force my doctors for a CT scan. a CT scan is like 400 chest x rays at once and 1 of 2000 CT scan patients will get cancer from a scan. i am from the medical field and i want to follow a guidline with this problem of mine. i have read that a lof of people seem to have similar problems.
starts with a cold (tickle, cough) and stays for weeks or months or years. doctors diagnose reflux, post nasal drip etc.
any experience with such a thing?
i do suspect silent reflux, because i have constant throat clearance, tickle in throat chest with changing sides, sometimes cough, in the morning mucus in my throat.
anyone with same problem?
