Cough Diagnosis

Chronic cough is one of the commonest symptoms of medical importance. About one in ten people suffer from daily coughing bouts and the doctor is usually at a loss to explain the symptom. Despite suffering greatly many people are dismissed as neurotic with a bad habit. Nothing could be further from the truth! In some patients asthma and nasal problems are the cause. In other patients a form of reflux which is unlike that causing heartburn is the cause of the irritation. Unfortunately doctors are not taught about these causes of cough and this adds to their confusion. Selfnostics have developed a questionnaire which allows you to diagnose yourself as to which of the common types of cough you have. Click here...

Because of the poor understanding of the causes of cough many doctors prescribe medication which is inappropriate and ineffective. With an accurate diagnosis we are able to recommend the correct treatment strategy for each individual patient. Selfnostics will provide you with a letter describing the most appropriate therapy and give your doctor the medical rationale for their use in chronic cough. They will not have thought of most of the drugs we use! Click here...
