Re: Persistant cough, chest pain, wheezing
There are many things that can cause a chronic cough.
If it is bacterial, the antibiotics should help.
For inflammed airways, the steroids will help .
Is her cough a dry cough? Chronic dry coughs are usually caused by allergies, asthma, PND or acid reflux.
If she is continually coughing hard enough to pull her muscles or hurt her ribs, you might ask the doctor to test her for Pertussis. Whooping cough is on the increase throughout much of the country. It is nicknamed the 100 day cough due to how long it lasts.
If she has developed pneumonia, that will typically show up on the chest x-ray she had.
I hope you find some answers soon,
