" I too have a dry, nagging cough that drives me crazy. I finally found out it is due to the GERD/hiatal hernia. The dr. gave me a list of foods to stay away from (basically chocolate and anything acidic). "

" Oh and he told me to lose weight stating that this would help release pressure from the hernia and open the airway more. "

" Sounds like what I have acid reflex,GERD. I aspirated yesterday morning and scared me to death when I couldnt breath, I was home alone with a 3 month old baby.

I know its cause I got feeling better and starated drinking tea, either decaf or caffiene will kick it in.

I dont know why we dont learn and dont lose the weight. I lost 30 lbs and was feeling better then stress came and I gained it back.

But that coughing is probably from acid going into your lungs while you sleep. Try not to eat anything 5 hours before laying down, take some mylanta before going to bed, stay away from acids, chocolates, caffiene and the list goes on and on,.

Gastrologist said only lose a lb a week anymore will damage your other organs.

Isnt life GRAND LOL no "

" coughing is very common with a fact coughing too much can keep pushing the hiatal up into the diaphram...which is not to your dr about the coughing "

" Yes, sounds like we have all had this problem. I think it is a symptom of heartburn becoming GERD becoming hiatal hernia requiring repair. The coughing and throwing up started for me in Europe, after being asleep for a few hours, and I was living it up on rich foods over there as you can imagine... the coughing wakes you up, if you are lucky -- it's acid coming up and then going down the wrong pipe, exactly what you don't want to sleep through. Time to get an endoscopy, I'm afraid. Good luck!!! "

" I have throat clearing - have had it for years! No one could figure out what it was - phlegm in my throat. I finally diagnosed myself - it's probably GERD. So annoying. "
