I'm feeling 100 times better mentally now. If feels like my normal IQ has returned to me after a long absence, and I'm able to react quickly enough to again be an active participant in conversations with my sharper friends. It feels wonderful, though I am getting a little impatient for my physical sx to subside. I'm needing about 10 hours of sleep per day, I still have intestinal problems, coughing & wheezing, skin issues and excessive bruising.
My fiance has been having what i like to call caughing attacks for about two or three weeks now. He believes it is his reaction to our new cat, he allergic to cats.

I am 44 years old, and have no history of Asthma, or any related respiratory disease. Recently I have been doing some renovations to the floor in my old home. Three weeks ago I developed an irritating cough. After one week this cough progressed into a paralyzing cough. When I go into my coughing fits, It makes me very dizzy, and feels like I am going to pass out. In fact, I have to support myself. Immediately after my coughing fit, I can't get my breath, it is like my airway is shut off.
My brother has an intense cough. He has had it for about 3 weeks and it is not getting any better. The doctor prescribed an inhaler and certain cough medicines but nothing is working. It has gotten to the point where by the end of one of my brother's coughing "attacks" he is in tears and feels as though he is going to be sick. It's the worst in the morning and at night. It is less painful when he is at school in class, but as soon as he goes outside for lunch it gets worse again.
After the cold is gone, it is possible for the inflammation to linger. This inflammation can last for several weeks. Sometimes this inflammation may linger for 3 to 6 months. Eventually the inflammation will go away, and then the coughing and wheezing will stop. This is called reactive airways disease (RAD) and behaves a lot like asthma. On a simple breathing test, called spirometry, this may not show up.
My 12 yr. old pug has been coughing for 3 months. I have been to two different vets and together they have ruled out collapsed trachea, kennel cough, pneumonia and heart disease. He has been on several different antibiotics and steriods. He is still eating as usual and the coughing seems to be worse at night. They are not productive coughs just dry hacking coughs. I am running out of ideas and am desperate for answers.
My Chihuahua is 11 years old and she has been coughing for about 5 months now. This is not a reverse sneeze, it is more like a dry hacking cough and then she will wheeze for several minutes (about 10 minutes on average). She sounds like she is in pain and she cannot breath properly during those spells. Her cough is especially prevalent during the night and morning. She will have coughing spells throughout the day as well (around once every two hour).

I'm having three beat runs of something. Feels like my normal rate just accelerates for three beats and resumes normal rhythm. They're harder though. And extremely consistent in the number three. I have been having a lot of atrial ectopics, singles. I'm trying to assure myself that the runs are just my SVT, but for me SVT usually initiates with a PAC, rockets to 180 and stays there until I break it by coughing. It's also exclusively exercise induced. This occurs at rest.
I'm a 27yr old female who has had a persistant cough for going on 3 weeks now. the coughing is my only symptom. No fever, swollen glands, or anything else that indicates some sort of infection. My sputum is always white. My cough is a hacking cough and I can't breathe and I gasp for air. It feels like I'm choking on dust or something. Also, now when I eat popcorn or chips little bits seem to get into my lungs because it feels like I'm choking on it the whole time I'm eating it.
I went to an ENT doctor and he told me I had Acid Reflux, which is the reason am coughing so much and bringing up mucus. I am on Pantecta now for over three weeks and still coughing.. Is there anything else I can take to stop this coughing.. I am really tired and frustrated.
My primary care physian prescribed a round of antibiotics three weeks ago which I took. The cough has since improved although that could be as much from the passage as time as from the drugs. Now, in addition to still having the cough I'm having joint pain -- pain in one of my fingers, one of my ankles and one of my wrists. It sort of reminds me of those "growing pains" from when I was a child. Could this cough and pain be related? Should I go back to my physician? And ask for what?
She has been admitted into the hospital for the next three days, at least. I wonder if the constant problem with the daily vomitting has anything to do with causing the tear in the placenta. Has anyone reading this had this kind of experience during pregnancy? And if so, what helped besides bed rest? What was the outcome?
I have been coughing a lot, but I'm not sure it's related to this problem. I have blood work done every 6 weeks so I can get my Lupus meds refilled. The rheu tests most eveything in that test, kidneys, thyroid, chlorestral, sugar levels, etc. They flucuate some, but only ones that worry me are the ones for the kidneys. I already have one stent in left kidney, kidney problems, along with autoimmune diseases runs in my family. Good luck with finding out about your nodule. Life is such fun.
My Mom has a 12 year old Yorkie/Cairn Terrier mix that has been coughing for several months. Has had him to the vet several times, they gave her medicine and antibiotics for allergies and bronchitis. A few weeks ago he had the diarrhea, the vet told her to mix pumpkin, hamburger & rice together...that worked, until a few days ago. She is talking about putting him to sleep.

In January I thought I was getting a cold and for three days took Zycam. The cold symptoms went away except for the cough. I later was diagnosed with bronchitis and after a couple of weeks and chest xray was told I had pneumonia. I had a CT Scan last year which showed a lesion. I was told it was scar tissue. During the last several months I have had 4 chest xrays and 2 more CT Scans showing new spots on my right lung.

I feel that my doctor isn't helping so i figure this place will give me better assistance. I've been coughing for 3 months now. I went to see my doctor (general practice) about the problem and he said i have PND (Post Nasal Driping). He gave me a handful of Zyrtec and prescibe me a bottle of Codeine 300-10. I've been on both of these medication for over 2 weeks now and it's not helping. The codeine gets me drowsy when i am at work, but i am still coughing.
I have tried quitting many, many, many, and many times, but have been unsuccessful. The longest i quit for was around three weeks. I don't drink any alcohol, although i have tried drinking a few times. Those first two years of smoking, were always accompanied by regular exercise. I was in the Varsity Soccer Team in high school and since soccer is my favorite sport, i used to play everyday.
have had three episodes of coughing up blood in the past 3 weeks or so, two after exercise and once because of an athma attack. I had a chest x-ray after the first two incidents from exercising that showed hyperinflation (despite the fact my peak flow was 530, my best is 550 and my chest was clear). I was told to take a week off of training, and then see if it happened again. I had a bad attack Monday night and coughed up some bloody mucus after two nebulizer treatments.
He has had this cough now for four weeks. It occurred back at the end of September for close to three weeks and was treated with his asthma medications (prednisone, Albuterol Inhaler, Flovent, Zyrtrec) and it finally went away. It came back almost four weeks ago but much worse than before. I am not exaggerating when I say he is coughing every 15-30 seconds, he is. He can manage to fall asleep for a few hours at night but is woken up by it or it takes him hours to fall asleep at night.
