    Chronic

    I have had a chronic cough since I was about 10 years old.  I still remember the winter it started, my mom's friend mentioning it was odd that I coughed all the time.  I thought nothing of it, assuming that it would go away like every other cough I'd...

    I Coughall the Time,too

    I sing and act in plays and I really have to make sure I am not in one of my coughing spells. The doctor said that the blood pressure meds I was taking could give me a cough so he changed them but I am still coughing all the time. Sometimes I can not get a breath in between.

    As a child I never had allergy problems

    but now I can't help but cough and sneeze if there's any variation in the air I'm breathing. It causes me to cough, and sneeze uncontrollably and all that pressure on my lungs from coughing has given me a consistent cough that is painful at times.

    I had a cold and I recovered it,

    that is what I do when the virus hangs around. The thing is that the cough remained. And it will remain 2 to 3 months. My throat is itchy, cold meds, hot drinks, lozenges, honey and minty sugar... Every way I relieve it. But that wheezy cough, dude, that sucks!

    Now this is strange,

    for years I've had tears running down my face every time I'd go outside and everyone would wonder why I've been crying! For some reason that has mutated into a nasty cough. Some of it related to too much dairy but maybe my sinuses do that because I don't have much to cry about...

    Coughing Up Blood

    I suffered a massive car crash which rendered me a quadruple amputee. Many of my vital organs are damaged. Which means I frequently cough up up blood.
