I am going through a pariculalry rubbish time in my life my husband and I have separated and I have been really run down. I was signed off by the dr for a fortnight as I seem unable to sleep very much at the moment and just need to take some time out. As soon as I have stopped I started with a cold which I have had since Thursday and for the last few days I have had a really bad productive cough. I have just been coughing so much that I was sick. I always carry a reliever inhaler around with me as I have previously had bad asthma but thankfully not needed to use it. I was wondering if anyone has asthma that is primarily just a cough? I have been coughing so much that I get a wheeze but that tends to go away when the coughing episode ends. I am not finding that I am getting any relieve from an inhaler and when I am in the middle of coughing it gets scary as I feel like it is not going to end. I don't consider myself to have true asthma but I was last like this in September and I don't think this is normal. I was wondering if I was on preventer inhalers regularly would this mean that I would be able to cope with a cold better?
Hope this all makes sense
Thank you xxxx
