Recently Recognized Neurogenic Cough

Neurogenic Cough is a recently recognized type of cough. This new way of thinking has implications for cough diagnosis, cough therapy, and cough resolution. Neurogenic Cough describes people who are hard-wired and hot-wired to cough.  Different triggers contribute to cough, but renowned Center for Cough expert Dr. Mandel Sher observes that hypersensitive throat nerve endings are often the primary source of cough. Cough may be the symptom of inflamed throat nerve endings.  If a person is set-up to cough, then triggers may produce just enough irritation to produce explosive cough.  For instance,  talking, viral and post-viral infections, allergies, laryngeal reflux, gastrointestinal reflux, and more, may flip the switch on inflamed throat nerves.

Dr. Mandel Sher and his cough doctor colleagues refer to this as “neurogenic cough” or cough hypersensitivity syndrome. There are different categories and sources of cough.  Find out from a cough doctor if your cough originates from neurogenic cough and be sure that the cough therapy is accurately matched to the cause for best results. See Dr. Sher and the Center for Cough doctors before wasting time and money or risking side effects of other cough therapy. Call today for an appointment to finally control your cough: 727-393-8067.

Do you know someone who has been coughing for months, years, or even decades? Has that person seen his or her doctor and tried different cough treatments or cough remedies only to fail and still be coughing? Does that person describe their cough as trying to cough-up something tickling the back of his or her throat? As a concerned family member or friend, are you thinking that this person will never decrease the intensity of his or her cough or get rid of it completely? Read more

Not All Coughs Are Created Equal

There are different kinds of cough and not all coughs are created equal.

Think about it like you would an online dating profile. There’s always a form you have to fill out introducing yourself to the online dating world. Right? You have to list your hobbies, your favorite foods, what kind of books you read, and so forth. If coughs had a profile, the questions they would have to answer to help identify themselves would look a little more like this…(and should probably be answered a bit more honestly than that dating profile you were filling out!!!).
