my cough is getting worse although it is only when I lie down at night.i try to sleep on my right side but still cough a bit then I turn over to lie on my left side which is the only side I can sleep on and am coughing for ages.i wonder if it could be linked to my rib pain-it is my left side where my ribs protrude and are most painful.
I did see my DR a couple of weeks ago because I was coughing at night and he said my chest sounded fine end of story.he said no more as seems to be the norm.should I go back and see a dr.my stomach has also got quite a bit bigger in the last 2 weeks and I still don't think it is "gas".I guess i will have to wait until I have my gallbladder op to see if its anythingor not .i am sure my dogs know something isn't right because of the way they look at me and one of them begs me not to go out when I have to.i am not stressed at the moment so I know its not that they sense.
I also wrote back to the practice manager and said that no one had ever mentioned stomach gas to me and if it is that no one has said what to do about it.(or anything else for that matter eg abdominal; lumps )and coughing for so long(since september)and worsening.
