pulled muscles from coughing


I had a bad attack on Wednesday and have been suffering with an asthma cough since then.

My breathing has got a lot better but I'm in pain around my chest whenever I breathe deeply/ cough / move wrong. From previous experience I know that I have pulled muscles in my chest.

was wondering if anyone had advice for controlling the pain/ speeding up healing?

Hot baths always help me when have problems - steam helps bring any phelgm up and relaxes muscles. I use this radox bath salt which is a special muscle one which helps me greatly!

Alas I don't have a bath at uni, only a shower. but just had a nice hot shower that helped a bit.

thanks for the reply
