I have, in recent weeks had some really bad coughing fits, which leave me exhausted.
I was diagnosed with mild asthma two years ago and prescribed a relieving inhaler.
I have had no follow up. I have used the inhaler for tight chest symptoms and a general feeling of struggling to get breath
occasionally since then. Recently, I have had spasms of coughing during the day only, which prevent me from speaking
and are bad enough to hurt my throat and leave me exhausted, needing to sit for a while to recover.
I do not know if this is asthma related or just perhaps a virus. This has been happening intermittently for several weeks.
Domestic sprays make me cough, but these spasm seem unconnected to my environment. They sometimes happen if I talk to much
on the phone. I have a persistent itching in my windpipe when I breathe out.
Is anyone familiar with this situation, or can offer advice please. I don't want to take up my Drs time with something trivial or transient.
