As a child I had colds with a lot of coughing as I got older things were worse. I lived in a house with everyone smoking but me. When married I got away from the smoking but with that I was getting my thyroid taken out. That’s 30 years that I’ve had bad colds with the coughing. I’m on second bad cold now. Then I got a lung infection thats been going on month with all coughing I’ve been on 2 antibiotics and 4 cough syrups. Dr. is sending to lung Dr. So tired of coughing!!!

    I know how you feel. I have Asthma and all I do is cough. I’ve asked my asthma and lung doctor why do I cough so much?I see other people that have asthma and they don’t cough like I do. I wear my mind and body out. I have become so depressed because of my asthma.I used to be a social butterfly,but know I don’t go out at all because I cough so much.

    We hear you BethAnn and appreciate your candid presentation of your experiences with second hand smoke and other medical conditions. It’s good to hear that you are going to see a pulmonary physician (you did mention a ‘lung doctor’). Perhaps now you will get a thorough examination and a definitive diagnosis. We wish you luck! Please do check back and let us know how you’re doing.
    All the best,
