Hi all - I've had a dry hacking cough (not chest infection or cold) just part of my condition. The problem is once I start coughing I end up in a coughing fit. When you cough you use muscles and muscles use oxygen and as I am only transferring approx 50% of the oxygen I should into my body i use most of it up coughing to the point of nearly blacking out I am awaiting to see a specialist, but was wondering if anyone out there had home remedies to ease the cough, honey and water and menthol chewing gum are easing it a bit but it is causing me chronic fatigue due to shortage of oxygen in my body. Ironically I have a large set of lungs (due to my sporty past) but just can't transfer oxygen into my body !!
