I have been coughing excessively day
and night for months, and wake up
frequently about to choke from mucous
in the throat. I use 2 pillows under
my head and worry about choking during
my sleep. As a result I suffer from
sleep deprivation and fall asleep
frequently in such places as movies.
I had surgery 8 years ago to remove
begnin tumors removed from my sinuses.
That condition was diagnosed as
"inverted papilomas." The only current
diagnosis re. the cough and choking is
acid backing up from the stomach, but
so far prescription strength antiacids
have not helped.
