For about a year, I have had a continual problem with coughing
and clearing my throat that is so bad, that I sometimes cannot speak at public
functions (part of my job.) Sometimes I cant even clear my throat no matter how hard I try. Every morning within 1 minute of getting out of bed, I have a coughing fit. However, I never have chest pain associated with heartburn.
My doctor says maybe it is post nasal drip but a daily nasal steroid spray and daily Zyrtec didnt help.
