Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
Coughing is severe often to the point that things go black and there is a ringing in my ears. I have never passed out, though I often think I may. I have allergies and my coughing onset is usually due to aspiration of food drink or sinus drainage. Sometimes It begins with a sharp tickle in my larynx.
From this study (4 months ago):
1st 3 symptoms due to a tooth extraction on 10/22/12 by an over-zealous dentist. After much effort the tooth finally came out and he exclaimed, "Most dentists would have sent a patient with a tooth like that to an oral surgeon, but I seem to have very good luck in getting them out." Little did I know that he had broken my maxillary bone and a week later I almost died from multiple bacterial infections in my sinus cavity. The bacteria damaged all 3 branches of my Trigeminal nerve and 3 surgeries later I have seen no improvement. Now have double vision in right eye and trigeminal pain 24/7. Gabapentin was a life saver, but only decreases pain and never eliminates it. Severe coughing started soon after starting gabapentin and cough is very wet, as if I have bronchitis. Chest x-Ray 4/7/14 shows normal and my doctor is perplexed. Neurologist has me taking Dextromorphan Hydrobromide, but seems to be ineffective. Help!

Age 66, F, Southern California. After fighting Trigeminal Neuralgia with meds, Shots, and other things I has Gamma Knife Radiation. It took 1 1/2hrs, of radiation and got up and walked with not pain. I am now on my 2nd year and can't beleive I went through 10 years of pain. Might look into it, you might be happy with results for many.
From this study (3 years ago):
Orthostatic cough and runny nose -- meaning they only appeared when I was upright, and were most likely related to my underlying condition, which is POTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. The cough started the evening of my first day and was so severe that I discontinued the med.
