I have researched the heck out of this to no avail. I have a 7 year old step-daughter and as long as I have known her (5 years) she has had periodic, persistant, habitual coughing episodes. Usually lasting 5-10 days at a time. She throws up often from the coughing, almost always in the middle of the night, NO other symptoms, I repeat, NO other symptoms accompany this. Just a dry annoying cough ALL day and ALL night. She has seen Dr.s and we have discovered nothing. I would say that this happens at least 12-15 times throughout the entire year.......
Any ideas or is anoyone else experiencing or familiar with this......HELP, I am tired of cleaning up puke, yes you guessed it, she can't seem to make it to a toilet or a trash can even when it's right next to her.....not to mention that the poor thing coughs non-stop and weighs nothing.
