Yes, he still coughed when he used Prilosec
He has taken flem samples from his lungs to have tested because they though he might have an infectious lung disease due to him taking an old house roof off that had lots of green stuff,etc. on the shingles.. but they tested no lung disease at all.
I don't think he has ... does antihistamines "dry up sinus"???
He had sinus surgery to fix a deviated septum and so now he breathes better... so he's thinking it's either sinus related and the stuff is seeping down onto his lungs.. or it's acid reflux coming up from his stomach.
I'm at a loss as to why he is coughing for 1 1/2 years now and we can't seem to find a cure for it.
He said his PCP says he has COPD... but when we were in california for over one week he felt wonderful with no coughing at all.
Yes, he has had a chest x-ray and all the tests you can imagine.. even a surgeon going in under anesthesia to look at his lungs and the doctor said Terry has lots of congestion on his lungs".
He has never smoked. He doesn't wheeze... they said he doesn't have asthma... but he is at my home going to college on line... since he has been here.. and I have an electric forced air furnace.. I hear that isn't good for people with coughs... his PCP told him to get a de-humidifier to dry up his room and that hasn't even seemed to slow it down.. but now he is doing more coughing that sounds like his lungs are trying to get rid of something.... dry climate?
If you have heard or want to go to the website... NativeRemedies.com.. he has used Acid-Free Flux and Gastronic Dr and it has worked wonderful for him and kept his acid down and from coming up on his throat.. and it helped for about 5 months, so their experts suggested he stay on that program. I don't know if I can tell you everything it has in their products but terry said the Acid-Free Flux worked marvelously! BUT it probably takes awhile??? before the lungs get free of the congestion and to KEEP it off is what we need to do...
Can he use these herbal remedies while he's taking his antibotics for 3 more days?
Thank you so much! I will proceed as you have suggested!
