i have just come back from helping children for a week but 3 of the 6 nights i had coughing fits. the first night of coughing fits meant that i was up ntil 2:03 at least. half an hour into it the n ight staff walked in and asked if i was alright, an hour later they walked back in again, half an hour later they walked back in again, half an hour after this the nurse walked in, she then said something along the lines of ""are you ok? i answered umhum, have you got your inhaler? umhum, have you used it? nuhum"". she then left. night staff walked in 5 mins later they then told me to take my inhaler and gave me a glass of water.
the next night i was coughing but they knew what it was now so they walked in almost straight away with a glass of water and told me to take my inhaler.
the following night i fell asleep and started coughing so by the time they came in i had no idea of the time or what was going on. they woke me up and told me to take my inhaler and gave me a glass of water.
how do i stop this night time coughing or at least control it??? any help would be greatly appreciated.
