Hello madam...it must be stressful.
Have you tried to send the sputum you bring up to the lab. What's the colour of the sputum you bring up.Have you been in contact with anyone with a cough before that.especially a tuberculosis cough.
My suggestion would be, get the sputum tested for bacteria and tuberculosis.some Lagos state General hospitals offer this service if you are in Lagos.
they may also ask you to do a chest Xray.
If all these come back normAl.
then we may be looking at causes like asthma,reflux disease,viral cough,postnasal drips
