I was diagnose first as sinustis first week warded,second week they told me asthma third week they told me lethagic and the report are actually interior mitral valve prolapsed.The main problem is dry cough.I actually got the symptom after i work overnight too much.Now i learn back and i stay overnight and got back dry cough and some arythmia problem.(maybe hot weather season here).I stay back normal not overnight then it will slow down the cought but after quite active back after i bit busy but i not learn overnight.I also had bored to test thyroid toxicosis test which result are normal and the test are given because they seem my throid gland like have lump.Are actually my heart cannot resist high activites causing the cough?I have try a lot of syrup cough but when i bit busy it catch me up and it very annoying.

Dry cough is usually caused by irritation of the throat, sinuses or the upper airways. This irritation could be caused by environmental causes. If you complain of dry cough mainly when you are at the work place, may be there is something there that irritates your upper airways causing you to have this cough. If you had acute sinusitis that turned into chronic sinusitis with post nasal drip that causes this cought.
i don't think that cough is related to your mitral valve prolapse or your heart.
