Hi all, I'm back! So I'm happy to say that I've been smoke-free for 5 months. However, I still have a big problem though, I continue to cough on & off during the day, but my biggest problem is waking up @ 3 or 4 am to use the bathroom ,then the endless coughing begins. Soon after the 20 minute coughing fit is over, I hear loud wheezing in my chest. The wheezing is so loud and annoying, that I'm unable to fall back asleep. This endless cycle is starting to take it's toll on me and I don't know what to do to minimise it or get rid of it. I heard fresh lemon juice , mixed with water and a bit of honey works, or if someone is brave enough, just bite in the the lemon wedges. Can someone, anyone please please help me. I can;t go on much longer like this, I'm burning out from lack of sleep and I'm scared wondering with all this coughing, if its causing harm to myself or if I will ever get a normal voice back.
Much appreciated, Penny
