Couching

My daughter would constantly couch at night while she was sleeping, we had her checked out and have never found anything wrong.

After she moved out my son moved into her bedroom after 18 months of having that bedroom he is doing a lot of couching at night.

How can I check or have a room checked for respitory problems?

The bedroom is next to the bathroom and although we have checked for leaks, it is a old house and there could be something remaining from the past owner.

I'm just not sure what to do or who to contact. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Couching

I would say she means coughing.

I would suggest getting the room checked for mould, dustmites, etc. I'm sure if you contacted an air quality company (phone book or enquiring through your doctor, health department..etc)

Can you explain the room....flooring, bed (old, new, mattress...etc), bedding, curtains, walls, etc.

Is your daughter better since moving?

It seems it would be the room if your daughter isn't coughing anymore.

Re: Couching

Sorry, was late when I posted this. I did mean coughing.

as for the room, the room has had two different beds and mattress' in it. Both beds have been metal frames.

The walls are sheet rock, there are no cutains only blinds. I'm not sure what the name brand of the carpet is or padding below it.

I will check and find an air quality company, thanks for the information.
