    I'm a little behind but your post caught my eye. I had a persistent cough with no diagnosis last winter. It happened following a mild respiratory infection. I was diagnosed with Laryngo/pharynx reflux. I would cough up clear frothy sticky mucus by the tons and always had a rattle in my throat. Another symptom classic to LPR is the feeling of a glob of mucus at back of throat at all times. It cannot be diagnosed by typical imaging. An ENT can perform an exam to diagnosis. It has none of the classic symptoms of reflux such as heartburn, burning in esophagus etc. Google LPR Laryngopharyngeal reflux or silent reflux Hope this helps.
