I'm falling asleep in front of the PC because I have been constantly waking up coughing all night.
This has been happening to me for the past 3 or 4 years at the same time every year...I catch a cold and get a slight cough which gets worse and worse and takes a couple of weeks to go away. Meanwhile I get little sleep and end up in a lot of pain and discomfort.
Smoking for 18 years has certainly taken its toll.
Let me serve as a warning to the rest of you (who smoke, that is)
i have to admit i've been coughing up some right dockers omlettes myself lately. maybe you should go the docs?
have a read of this if you want; http://mattykinsthe2nd.livejournal.com/1417.html
i wrote it q soon after i started using this.
i find the best way to quit or cut down is to just stop buying them.
at a time like this one wishes that the good old Drowsey Benelyn was still available, that stuff was great. of ov course you could mix sudafed and nytol, you wont wake up for about 3 days lol.
but on a serious note I would say doctor is the best course of action...
I'm feeling a lot better...It's only at night when I lie on the wrong side and the tickly bit in my throat is irritated.
This happens at about this time every year for the past 3 or 4 years, so I'm kinda used to the week or so of no sleep per annum. No point going to the doctor's though. What is the doc going to give me that I can't get over the counter?
