Hi all. Ill be brief. 3 months now i have had this upper airway irritation , trachea plus nasal stuffiness and coughing not heavy just boughts at certain times of day especially when weather changes or I am driving in my truck , the airway irritation has been there 24/7 for last 3 months the only relief i get is airways chewing gum and a bit of vicks in a bowl of water inhalation but doesnt clear the airway feeling which is hard to describe . . Doc seems to think it acid reflux , been on tabs 2 months Omeprazole 20 mg daily , no effect what so ever , told him they don't work all I get is give them a couple of more weeks , getting pretty pissed off as its not clearing and I think im getting chinned off . Never had indigestion or heartburn no bad stuff in throat , wake up in morning feeling better untill i stand up then hey ho the irritation is still there . Breathing ok lungs have been listened too , not out of breath , exercising still good no coughing after . Blood test all ok . sputum test ok Angina blood test ok dont smoke eat healthy and i drink only at weekends not a big drinker just a few pints . . Swimming regularly no effect on stamina or breathing . I feel as if this is never going to clear I am hoping the onset of good weather might shift it but not looking good so far , cant get to Docs on a regular basis work away all week , any one out there have or had similar symptoms so i can start looking to get this sorted . cheers Sludge . no smart arrse answers this is beginning to get me pissed of already .
