re: Coughing when trying to go to sleep

Could be one of two things. 1. Acid reflux. Do u have heart burn throughout the day? 2. Nodule on thyroid gland. Sounds wierd but that happened to me last year. I did not sleep for two weeeks. Everytime I laid dowm and was about to dose off would wake up coughing. Easy fix though.

Go see an ENT.

Thats a sign of acid reflux


Specifically lpr. Look it up. Avoid caffeine, cough drops, mints, chocolate and grab an OTC ppi such as omeprazole 20mg. It can take a few weeks for your cough to resolve.

Could be one of about ten things. See your primary care physician. Not a subspecialist unless you have prior diagnosis of some condition you aren't sharing.

Change your pillow.

Seriously. There may be dust mites in your pillow which causes allergic reactions in many people.

I have the same problem and it's allergies. Take a tablespoon of honey and it should help. It quiets my cough down quickly.

I had the same thing last week.

I didn't take anything but did drink a lot of water. Was gone in 5 days

re: Coughing when trying to go to sleep
Coughing usually happens when you're lying on your back. Lay on your side and it should minimize it.

It's usually reflux. The acid in the stomach makes it's way into the esophagus as you lay down.

Umm....have you seen a doctor about this. You sure it's not Pertussis?(whooping cough).


Yes I have, and although it had been going on for about 6 weeks they told me they don't do X-ray or anything further than normal checkup until about 3 months.

Hate wasting my time and the doctor's for what they seem to think isn't much of anything so haven't been back.

This will sound weird.. Get some Vick's VapoRub and coat the bottom of your feet with it. Put on some socks. Enjoy your immediate cough free night's sleep.
