I have always had a problem of coughing since the last 10 yrs or so. Initially the cough would go away after a couple of weeks but off late i started to have severe bouts of dry coughing that wont go for months. Went to many docs but no one has been able to diagnose the problem. I am a non smoker and 32 yrs old female. Everytime the doctor prescribes a spirometry and xray but both turn out to be nevative for any disorder. My blood reports are normal except for the eosinophil count always above normal. I have been prescribed several medicines some inhalers and singulair. I dont take these medicines regularly only when there is a coughing flare up. Recently i was given prednisone 10 mg twice daily but i dont see much of relief from it i am on day 2. How long does prednisone take to show its effect ? Does anyone have similar condition like me ? Do i have asthma or its because of allergies ? I dont have any stomach burn so i am ruling out GERD. I am really confused and so are the doctors. But this cough has made my life miserable and embarassing to face friends and family especially when i have a bad cough.
