I'm currently recovering from a couple of serious attacks with hospitalisations. The doctors said one trigger for the first was an infection which I finished a course of anti-biotics for yesterday.
I've got a cough now that seems to be getting worse rather than better. I sound like a sea-lion!! I'm still bringing up some green yuck, but not anything significant.
This cough is much worse in the evening and overnight. The doctors had given me codeine to suppress it at night so I could sleep, but even that's not working now. I gave up in the end last night and got up, because I wasn't going to sleep with it. I've dozed today as I've been exhausted, but I really don't want to get into a pattern of sleeping at the wrong times.
I live in student halls, and I'm keeping my neighbour awake with the cough and feeling very guilty about this. Does anyone have any tips to reduce the coughing so I can get some sleep (I cough upright and lying down, so stacked up with pillows isn't even helping now which normally does ). I am seeing my GP on Monday, but anything I could try to get through the weekend would be appreciated. Thanks.
