In my life I've had pneumonia once and bronchitis many times. But I can't even begin to list all the health probs I've had just in about the last nine months: hormone probs, migraines, unexplained hives on my face that required a Medrol pack, ear infections, etc. And now this. A year ago all I had going on was slightly irregular periods due to perimeno. Now I take the Pill for that and that at least is fine.
I had a boyfriend who began being treated with asthma and then told me he had a more serious lung disease. Could I have caught something from him that took time to show itself? My last contact with him was in June. And this last cough came from visiting a friend who was ill with it.
I am headed for the ER if I still have even a little pain breathing tomorrow because I don't know what this could be--asthma maybe? I have no fever and otherwise feel fine.
Are you allergic to dairy? I am and if I eat dairy especially dairy that's creamier, I wheeze, I have trouble breathing, my chest gets tight, I get stabbing pain in my chest that hurts when I move, laugh, or breathe, I also got hives (visibly on my face and just over itchiness from the chest up), and lastly ear aches (in some people ear infections are caused by a dairy allergy, my daughter got them chronically until we stopped feeding her dairy). I also suffer from migraines, but when I stay away from things that trigger them such as allergens my migraines go down. If you're really tired because of all of the symptoms you're suffering from that could be triggering migraines.
