My doctor originally thought it was GERD, I was on medicine (blocker ones) for two months where my condition didn't improve. If anything, it made it harder for me to digest what food I do have (I dont drink, I don't have a lot of spicy food, I don't like acidic foods... I'm so boring!). The doctor then admitted it was unlikely I had GERD. The few signs I had was a rather sore throat - but she then said as I was constantly coughing and hawking stuff from my lungs, I'd probably damaged that area to start with.

I have suggested post-nasal drip but I've had my ENT specialist (I see one anyway with my thyroid condition!) check this out (Xrays etc etc) and he said I have no sinus issues D: clear as a bell, as are my ears!

I've had some pulmonary tests done, they've all come back above board with results (good to excellent depending, as I have asthma to start with). I have no idea what my specialist will likely order on May 23rd :( I hope for a CT scan but as far as my current doctor is concerned, he thinks it's consolidation that's clearing up.

It's left me completely stumped!
