Pertussis: My best 'guess' would be pertussis or 'whooping cough' which is classically associated with vomiting after coughing. Coughs from this illness can be spasmodic and can last for weeks. Given your tests are reassuring, I think dealing with symptoms is the best treatment: Try regulating what you eat at when-- cough is worse at night. Try anti-cough medicines. Ginger tea might help too. See a doc also.
