cough for 2 1/2 years..
I am going to work on getting this message out...maybe an investative type show...12years ago I coughed for over two years...cracked 4 ribs coughing thought it was pulled muscles! became incontinent...ghastly experience for my husband and I ...9 specialists, 12+diagnostic tests...GERD, allergy, biopsy of bronchials, brain scan...etc. finally a naturopath for two visits then a chiropractor and eureka! a neck adjustment brought relief for 3 blessed weeks and subsequent adjustments over the next year gave dwindling periods of relief. Armed with this evidence consulted a neurosurgeon who did a CT and EEG...a disc was pressing on the spinal cord at C-6,7. A cervical laminectomy (disc removal with graft) and I've been cured for 12+years. Now, I never had whiplash, back injury, etc and yet I had this...imagine someone who has had neck distorted...even through birthing and never got it fixed...at least consult a chiropractor...I'm now a believer!!
