Lightbulb friend with a slight cough

i think i saw a post about slight coughing (perhaps on another board), and i was wondering about a
friend of mine who has a dry cough, very slight, that's been investigated all ways to sunday (chest x ray, allergy, etc) ... could she be slightly hypo? she has the usual late middle-age weight problems (but who hasn't?), dry hair and skin (could be post-menopause?), says she feels like there's "something on my chest" (for years now)..

hmmm ...

Hi jinglebts
So many premenopausal, or menopausal ladies are hypo, it is well worth getting checked out. The female hormone imbalance is truly helped by progesterone. A lot of ladies find real relief with it.

Thyroid can affect so many things, I can't say if it would affect her cough. My body was totally haywire when severely hypo, though, so i would not rule it out.

I know what you mean...hardly anyone listens when I suggest that they get their thyroid tested. Or they tell me their doc said it was in the lab range. tsk

i spoke to her today, and she said it wasn't on the list of symptoms, and anyway she didn't want to take any more drugs and it was just a minor cough (been there for two years -- the ALLERGIST said it was post-nasal drip), and ANYWAY she wasn't tired (but she says she's always tired - she has a right to, in a demanding job ) ... and then said she was tired and was going up to have a nap, so go figure ...

jinglebts,
Just thought I'd let you know I ran across "coughing, worse at night" on a symptoms list. I can't post the site, it's a commercial, copyrighted one. But the list is a good one...very comprehensive.

It probably won't make a difference to your friend...some people won't hear anything they don't want to.
