No matter how much I clear my throat or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cough</span>, I cannot clear out my throat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my voice is almost gone.

After the first, she had no ill effects, but following the second in November 2007, she almost immediately developed respiratory problems -- a hoarse voice, a deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> persistent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cough</span>, shortness of breath, and some bloody discharges through the nose.

08 (73%). At Mayo endoscopy also diagnosed allergic rhinitis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> significant chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Laryngitis</span>.

Was put on Augmentin for the infection, but didn't help the lungs. Have a clear chest xray and docs can't hear anything in my lungs. They are scratching their heads: am now on another antibiotic (just in case!), albuterol inhaler, antihistimine, Cough suppressant, etc. -- nothing helps! Am really feeling depressed and uncomfortable--miserable.
