In brief: GERD?

Have you been evaluated for gerd? This can also contribute to bronchospasm and result in cough.
It is not likely to be due to infection if it has been present for 2 years. If you are smoking, you need to quit. You may need pulmonary function testing to rule out copd, especially if you have smoked.

In brief: Detailed evaluation

Once you have undergone many treatments for both pulmonary, medical reasons for cough there can be more aggressive treatments for reflux that can sometimes help clear a cough.
If this is not helpful your doctor should consider diagnosis of laryngeal neuropathy and an ENT referral should be considered.

In brief: Detailed evaluation

This is a question that requires a thorough evaluation by a competent pulmonologist.
A good history, physical examination, review of all your medications, review of all tests, and further testing with a ct scan of the chest, esophageal pH monitoring if not already done.
