Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by the crawling sensation in throat followed by the urge to cough for the last year and few months.
You need to consult your personal physician for the definitive diagnosis but the possibility of GERD leading to cough in your case is quite strong and you must discuss the same with your physician and the treatment of the same might help your cough.
Hope this helps. Take care.
