Hello and welcome in HCM
I can understand your concern
As you explain the history there are several possibilities which should be examined for your chronic cough:
Alergies, Post nasal drip due to sinusitis,gastric reflux. Sometimes medications for arterial hypertension may cause this kind of cough too.
If you were my patient i would recommend you to evaluate the above with your doctor and to discuss with him.
According to the results than he should guide you further for the right treatment such as :inhalers for alergies, topical sterioids for sinusitis and anti reflux drugs orally for gastric reflux.
I hope to have been helpful
Regards and feel free to ask me again
As you explain the history it seems to be an allergic situation that has caused the obstruction of the airways which needs a chest X-Ray and a Spirometry test.
Please discuss with your doctor for the above or you can attach me the results and I will try to help you again
