Cough is a reflex: Initiated by irritation in a bronchial tube. It sends a message to the brain computer (lower brain) that initiates the reflex. If the pulmonary studies are normal it might be that the reflex is too sensitive. I have seen many patients where this is caused by lousy diet that results in oxidative dysfunction in brain. See my blog "oxygen the spark of life and look for some older posts.
