Hello. I'm 20 years old and love to cook. I went to school for Culinary Arts. But I can't keep a job in the Culinary Field because, I always get this really bad Cough at least once or twice every month or every other month. I went to a doctor, and he said I was allergic to Florida's Plants, and gave me some allergy medicine. Then he said I had asmatha(sry spelling) so he gave me an inhaler and some antibodics. The cough, gets so bad sometimes that I gag my self while coughing. I can't be in a Kitchen cooking when I have a cough, because that could be comtainateing the food. Also I can drink so much water, tea, milk, etc. When I eat dinner with my friends or family I go through about 4-5 glasses before they have finished their 1st glass. I have been tested for diabetes plenty of times and I don't have it. I hate going to the doctors because they are always telling me there is nothing wrong. This time I have had the cough for 2 weeks now, and in september I had just gotten over the cough. I have been told its the cold but I never run a fever, and never get the chills or anything. I just get the cough so often that I know it can't be the flu . I'd really like to know if anyone of you can help me and direct me to some one that might know. Because I would love to get back into the kitchen with out worry. Thank you so much!!!
