Nasty cold and cough
well I am the lucky one to contract a nasty spring cold. This is day 6 for me. It started out with a sore throat for 2 days that felt like strep and then it turned into congestion, a headache, sheer misery stuffy head and ears and then my dreaded fear the tickle cough began on day 5 and 6. The kind that tickles and sets off a spasm in the back of your throat and upper bronchi. It gets out of control and I pull every muscle in my neck and chest and pardon me for say can even loose a little bladder control. This is insane to cough that hard. It's like I can't catch my breath. Is this typical of a cold? I have had this a couple of times in the past few years and I always dread a cold because I feel like I am going to die from the cough.
Does anyone have any remedies or suggestions? I am taking Theraflu, sucking on cough drops, drinking plenty of water etc...I just fear this and its worse late at night and just after waking up in the morning. I do have allergies but this is not from my allergies, this is a definate cold. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks!
