My partner (58 y.o.) has attacks of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span>
that last for literally hours-- very deep
unproductive coughs. He has no trouble breath
ing except that it is hard to catch a breath
between coughs, though he does have a very small amount of wheezing after a while. He will be perfectly OK, then his head will suddenly fill with fluid, it runs down his throat, and the tickling of his throat by the fluid is what causes the coughing
, which goes then nonstop for 2-3 hours.
