In brief: Possibilities...

Possibilities include post-nasal drip and gerd, especially if the cough worsens when lying down.
Another possibility is bronchospasm or it could be a combination of several diagnoses. The treatments for these are all different so see your doctor so a diagnosis can be made and treatment initiated.
