This cough has lasted for two weeks now. It started as an "irritating" mild cough that began when I was at home recovering from an intense sunburn.
Coughing is not frequent(I can go a good hour or two with no coughing) but when I do cough I will cough myself out of breath and there is no stopping it.
Often accompanies gagging and (once) throwing up dinner.
I cough up some sort of flem but its different from anything I've seen before. Its white. With the consistency of saliva (just a tad thicker). It doesn't get coughed up without a fight. If I intentionally try to cough it up it often leaves me gasping for breath and gagging.
The first coughs of the spasms are usually bigger but they lead to smaller short coughs with no inhale in between
Right now I'm taking NyQuil(sp) to make it through the nights but I'll still sometimes wake up coughing.
I want to know what it is and if I can just wait it out or if i should get it checked out. Going to the Doc. is kinda complicated
Ok, I think that's it. I'll try to answer any other questions you may have.
