I have been having a cough since 2001 which starts out as an itch or tickle in the back of my throat
and causes me to cough
uncontrollably, most of the times in fits. I cough
throughout the day and night, even when I am asleep, I have disturbed sleeping due to the cough. Plus, I have seen my doctor, and the diagnosis is severe allergies, brought on by chalk dust. I have been prescribed medicines, but nothing seems to work.
