See answer: Tough to answer your question without examining you. Assuming the doctors are performing a good exam and have good diagnostic acumen, you may have variant asthma and underlying reactive airway dx. Certainly if you smoke, stop, etc. The patient always knows their body best. If it persists much longer, than your asthma/cough would need to be treated better and possibly a chest x-ray would help.
