Coughing Fits

sick_in_bed After 13 nights in a row of coughing fits that kept me up all night I finally had a good night sleep. I have been trying to sleep propped up because when I lay down I keep choking. I keep thinking I am recovering from this cold and then a sleepless night puts me right back under. Not getting any sleep has wreaked havoc on my mental and physical well being. The mistake I made was that since I couldn’t do much else, all I did was work work work. But resting your mind is just as important for your health as resting your body. And when this cold is gone for good I plan to do more of both.

    Someone didn’t get the flu shot??? Yeah, neither did I… I remember a couple weeks ago, laying in bed, coughing, it seemed, every minute. It led to some very very strange dreams. I dreamed the cough was about 4×4 and very thin, like a piece of paper, and it was caught in my longs. I think for three nights, I got maybe 6 hours of sleep combined. Most of that on the sofa.
    Finally, I went to the doctor. I was hardly able to speak. They prescribed antibiotics and albuterol through a nebulizer.
    My wife got the same thing, but didn’t have the cough.
    My daughter had the flu shot, and didn’t get this at all. Next year, and every year after, we’re getting the flu shot.

    Hi Karen, that happened to me once and it turned out to be bronchitis (that progressed from a cold). The problem was that coughing all night kept irritating my trachea and kept me from healing. I ended up getting an inhaler to use for a few days and that kept me from coughing and I got better right away. Highly recommend that solution as it was the only one that worked after I had tried just about everything.
