Coughing When Going To Sleep?
anya, I am a 35-year-old housewife, lately I often feel that my throat is very itchy when lying down / going to sleep during the day or at night, causing a continuous cough of mucus. For the record, the week before I had a dry cough but it had subsided. rnIs my cough related to stomach acid?rnThank you
Thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
A cough that appears at night can be caused by various conditions. The several conditions that can be considered as the cause of your current complaint are as follows:
Allergic cough. Coughs that are triggered due to irritation triggered by certain substances such as dust, smoke, certain foods and other substances. Viral or bacterial infection Presence of infection in the lower respiratory organs, for example, the presence of bronchitis or the presence of tuberculosis infection. There is throat irritation due to rising stomach acid. This condition is known as acid reflux disease. A side effect of drugs. One of the antihypertensive drugs can trigger coughing. Presence of other medical conditions. If your cough condition has been going on for a long time and is disturbing enough for you, you need to have a doctor's direct examination. If there is a particular focus of infection, it is necessary to administer antibiotics in treatment. In addition, the need for further supporting examinations such as chest X-rays, blood tests or allergy tests will be adjusted according to the results of consultations with the doctor later.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
