I wake up in the middle of the night with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> from it..but then it progresses to constant coughing.

For the last 4 weeks or so I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>, to the point of irritating my throat and causing my voice to disappear. in the morning I cough up phlegm, but throughout the day it seems like a hacking cough that produces phlegm just into my throat.

Three or four days after open heart surgery (AVR) in March, I began what was initially a persistent, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>. After a couple more days, I wondered if the inspirometer had become contaminated (it was about the right number of days to have symptoms after the first time I used it). my capacity was fine, 2000 ml, so I gave it up. Somewhere in there, probably during the next week, I noticed difficulty getting my breath, and that is still the case after four months.

Since about 2 weeks later, I started having a persistent, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>. I've been trying to figure out why, and what's triggering it. First, I thought it was movement (walking too fast) and cold air, and walking too fast still does trigger it. However, there are other times I start coughing when I'm just sitting there, at my laptop (eg).
I have been taking Advair for many years now, and I believe it is affecting my vocal chords. I am a singer, and I always have to clear my throat, and am always raspy.

fever 102, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> with some phlegm, chest tightness, lungs clear, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>laryngitis</span>. my fever is gone, but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> remains with some phlegm.

What type of doctor should I see? I am a 49 year old female. Also, why do I get this every few months?
