Coughing side effect?

Hey All,

I started on Gilenya back in November last year. It has been great, no complaints. However in the past few weeks I've picked up this cough that I cannot kick. One of the side effects of this is apparently a cough. Does anyone here have experience with this at all? Is it common? Thanks.
