What asthma medications are you taking?
Have you had any pulmonary function tests done?
I don't see that you are online any omre
ANyway, if you are having issues with cough and your scans have been clear, this can be one of a couple of possibilities
1. this could be undertreated asthma. You may need a change in medication
2. this could be allergies. You could consider taking an over the counter zyrtec to see if this helps
3. this could be reflux- this often causes cough at night
What I would do is try treating any possible allergies first- you can try a daily zyretc
if this does not help, then try adding on pepcid (also over the counter) for reflux.
eat a bland diet, no alcohol and do not eat 3 hours prior to sleeping
if this does not help, then I would go back to the GP and ask for a consultation with a pulmonologist
they may need to run pulmonary function tests and see if your asthma meds are optimiezd
please let me know if you have further questions :-)
if you are satisfied, please leave positive feedback :-)
Hell Doctor Cameron sorry about confusion, anyway yes I had a thorough pulmonary function test done after the initial finding of the nodules. The test came up completely clear. I do suffer very much from acid reflux have tried omneprazole (i think that the spelling) but have had severed headaches from it. I have clear sticky phlegm .
Sorry but I have explained that I have had pulmonary test done last year but this was very satisfactory can it be linked to acid reflux which I have quite badly. Thank you.
