i keep waking up every night at around 3am with uncontrollable coughing. not phlegmy or mucousy cough. it is just a dry cough and i cant breathe out without coughing...

i went to the doc once before for this but it went away, and now it is back. the doc told me it was acid reflux/GERD problems and stop eating saturated fat lol, but... i didnt obviously

anyway, can anyone hack this??

+1 for the "hack my hacking" ;p And your doc may actually be right about the acid reflux, just wrong in the way he wants you to fix it. Check out Chris Kresser's excellent series on healing GERD, try some of his suggestions and see if maybe that helps.

Maybe this isn't helpful, but I'll chance it!!

I've been recovering from a very dry itchy throat/cough and was waking up several times with coughing fits. I did the following before bed and throughout the day to help calm the throat and over time it helped.....

1 tbs butter or ghee

1 tbs honey (or less depending on your taste)

squeeze one half of 1 orange into the mix

melt it slowly and mix until its just warm and liquidy.

I would take one spoonful as needed. Something about the buttery honey orange was super soothing to my throat!!

My wife had the exact same type of cough and her doctor told her to take a vitamin b complex and it went away.

My 10 year old daughter developed the same cough this last April and nothing worked until we went to an allergist and found that she was allergic to grass and some of the local trees. We put a hepa filter in her room and it went away.

Good luck.
