Cough - sporadic but annoying!

I had a nasty bout of the flu which started with a cough. This was 3.5 weeks ago. The main symptoms cleared within 2 weeks and the cough pretty much went. Then, last Friday, the cough came back - tight upper chest-throat area, discomfort etc - then it went again. However, yesterday, it returned again - the Friday cough! Just feels weird - not all the time but tight and constricted. Anyone else experienced this? I guess it’s my health anxiety going into overdrive again...

Thanks, Nat. Health anxiety can be debilitating. I think sharing experiences is a good way to manage, though. Matthew
