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'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?
