In brief: Possibilities...

Possible etiologies for a chronic cough include bronchospasm due to any cause, gerd, sinus problems or even a combination of these factors.
Each of these diagnoses has a different treatment so you need to continue to see your doctor until the right combination of treatments is found that resolves the cough. You may need some tests to make the complete diagnosis. So, see your doctor.
