Hello,
Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
One cause of intractable cough in which all routine tests are normal, is an unidentified allergy or asthma. If you have high blood pressure and are on an ACEI or ARB, it is very likely to be the cause.
I shall be happy to answer any other queries.
I find this answer helpful
