GERD : Not everyone has the same symptoms of Gerd. If you notice that your cough and mucus improve with therapy for Gerd, that is a good sign that you have figured out the reason for it. I would continue your therapy recommended by your doctor. Anti-reflux measures such as tilting your bed in avoiding certain foods are a good idea too. Good luck.

To clarify: I think it is very possible your cough and mucous are due to GERD. It may be useful for you to try medication to bring your GERD under control, to see what happens to these symptoms. See your primary care doctor or gastroenterologist.
