All tests ( lung xray, blood, infection, pneumonia myco, ect) have bcome back negative. I worked in Haiti for 3 months at the beginning of the year returning home n April.

Cardiologist 's  Response
A long lasting symptom like cough - without fever, weight loss etc - more than a month - NEEDS extensive investigations. One has to rule out a few serious things - more than to rule in simple ones.
Have you done a CT chest (X-ray)? Has Lung function test (Spirometry) been done?
A Pulmonologist (lung specialist) is the one to help you
