ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Hi all, Im Henry and have this chronic cough since childhood that randomly occurs. There is no tickle in throat or anything and I just cough like a smoker's cough yet I dont smoke cigarettes. I been to several doctors and none have given me any answers on how to prevent or what causes it. Its rather embarrassing so I have not been my social self. People always ask me if Im OK or need a cup of water. I'll go to the movies alone or with one of my best friends that understands the situation. I have not gone to a party in awhile and my self-esteem has been affected by this cough. I'll start talking to someone and randomly just cough a lung up. One doctor thought it was acid reflux, while another thought it was allergies. One even thought it was asthma but I tried the inhaler and still cough. The doctor that thought it was asthma gave me steroids but that didnt help me.
