Dry intermittent cough for 3 weeks with throat and chest tightness. I do not smoke. Not an issue when working out or sleeping. Starts a couple hours after waking up. Can pnd cause all of this?
Cough. Pnd can definitely be the culprit if you have it. Allergy with PND or without can do it as well. Acid reflux is another common cause. To remove or lessen pnd, I use neti pot, humidifier in the room through the night if the environment you live in is dry. Acid reflux - prop the head of the bed, avoid overeating, tight belts, supine positions after meals, lose weight. Try Omeprazole or prevacid (lansoprazole).
