Thanks for writing in.
The two possibilities that come to my mind are an allergic cough
, GERD(gastro oesophageal reflux disease), post nasal drip
If you can identify the allergen that is causing your symptoms, avoid the allergen.
Any history of heartburn
, acidity ,etc?
I would suggest you visit a physician to help with the diagnosis and treatment.
In the meantime, follow the general measures to help reduce your symptoms,
Drink at least 8 -10 glasses of warm water a day.
When you are sleeping, lie on your left or right side, with head slightly elevated on a pillow.
Do not sleep immediately after a meal; wait for at least 2 hours after a meal before lying down.
I hope I have answered your question. Please do get back to me if you have further queries.
Have a great day :)
