hi everyone im new here my 5 year old DD was diagnosed yesterday by an ENT with silent reflux. this was a surprise to me as she doesnt have any of the "classic" symptoms. just a cough.long story short she has had a chronic dry hacking cough for 2 years. diagnosed last year wth cough variant asthma. no improvement with asthma meds (qvar, singulair). also diagnosed in spring with post nasal drip. so we added nasonex, i still notice improvement. she is very healthy from july-september, even off all meds.
this school year has been the worst yet, coughing for 2 weeks every month since october. the last three mos. she has needed Prednisone steroid to stop the cough. and her pedi believes she has a sinus infection right now. unfortunately it seems like she has several issues going on, each aggravating the other.

so now we are trying prevacid & will reevaluate in 3 mos. does anyone have advice, tips , suggestions? thanks for reading!
