Also taking 100 mcg Eltroxin for Hypothyroidism .I have tried all other HT drug combinations as advised by doctors. I could not continue other drugs due various side effects. Whenever I get cold, cough starts and remain for months. Now I have severe dry cough and consulted chest physician, found all OK . No chest infection, but cough & wheezing remains.

Brief Answer: Reassuring / some suggestions given... Detailed Answer: Dear friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic It is really reassuring to have the blood test results - normal… Normal CT and PFT exclude any serious underlying cause… It is most likely allergic Blood tests like RAST may identify the allergen in some people / if found, desensitization may be attempted. If very severe and interfering with life style, short term oral steroids may be tried… / Pulmonologist can help… It is very cumbersome and not cost effective to find a cause for hypertension. In spite of all this, the chance of finding is very low and not worth the trouble – unless the pressure is very high / difficult to control / widely fluctuating / electrolyte or kidney impairment and so on… Hence essential Hypertension is taken for granted, unless proved otherwise… Good luck Take care Wishing all well God bless
