It has been one and a half month since the problem started. I have been badly coughing since one and a half month. Initially I thought it was just a normal seasonal cough. I went to a routine physician, he gave me some medicines for seasonal cough for a week, but it didn't help. Then I got a little suspicious and went to my family doctor. He prescribed me some medicines and asked to visit him after a week or soo. But his medicines didn't help too. Later I went to him and he changed the drugs and again asked me to come over after a week. This happened four times, but his drugs worked only at the fourth time. My coughing stopped, the cough stopped. I was back on track and was very happy. He had prescribed the medicines for 4 days and it worked, but on the fifth day my coughing started asusual. It pains soo much now while coughing, it gives me pain in my stomach and other regions now. And one more problem, sometimes when I coough it gives me a sudden heavy pain in under the ribs on the right side. Guys I am soo worried, I can't understand what to do. I have a foreign trip next month ahead and I can't miss that. Please suggest me what to do, And If I may what specialist should I consult.
I need immediate HELP

P.s I have also tried all home remedies used to stop coughing. :confused::confused:
