My husband has been struggling with a chronic cough for over ten years. He has been seen by twelve physicians to date for this problem and even had surgery for GERD and none of them have been able to touch this cough. It is beyond frustrating! He has been worked up for everything from serious issues like cancer to non-life threatening but annoying things like post nasal drip and nothing shows up except the post nasal drip/sinus drainage which he has been treated for to no avail.

His gastroenterologist told him that there is a physician in the Boston area who is nationally famous for helping people with chronic coughs when no one else can and he actually goes by the nickname "Dr. Cough". Well, I have googled everything I can think of and then some and I can't find any trace of this "Dr. Cough". We would be happy to travel to Boston to get help for this problem, that is not an issue at all at this point.

I know this is probably like looking for a needle in a haystack but what do we have to lose? Has anyone here ever remotely heard of this "Dr. Cough" or know of a famous specialist in the Boston area who treats chronic coughs? If not, does anyone have any experience with this and was cured, and if so, how?

Any information would be most appreciated. He just had his twelfth doctor tell him that he has no idea what to do for this problem.

This is a long shot - perhaps Dr. Sidhu Gangadharan?

Here's a broad search link - https://www.google.com/search?q=Dr.+Sidhu+Gangadharan

Also research Dr. Gangadharan and TBM - here's a search link - https://www.google.com/search?q=Dr.+...angadharan+TBM
