Hi all. I haven't written previously but I wondered if I have just discovered something or if you all knew anyway! I have IPF and have been coughing worse than ever for a few weeks. Last friday night there was no way I could get to sleep. Even propping myself up didn't help.
The cough then became chesty and after three particularly bad nights I decided to look on the internet for advice. Someone had written about rubbing Vick's vapour rub into the soles of babies feet and then putting socks on. It seems that really did work. Well I had nothing to lose so I tried it. Did it work for me? Yes!! It wasn't quite a perfect cure but I hardly coughed that night and, continuing with the treatment, I've hardly coughed at night since. Amazing!
Good health to you all.
PS wasn't the webinar great. I thought I was well informed for a patient but I found it really interesting, if sobering at times.
