I`ve noticed just yestarday, that I`m getting a tickle deep in my throat, almost in my chest, and it causes me to hack, and get a nastey whooping cough. I do have the onset of asthma, but my doctor didn`t give me an inhaler. My friend has a cold, and I was around her just last week, but I don`t think it`s from her. she had her cold more than a week before I went over. The weather`s been very unstable however. I live in the great lakes area, and lately, it`s been like this; 1 day 65*, next 90*, then next day, back in the lower 60`s. Plus it`s been raining for the last 3 days. Could I be coming down with a bronchal infection? My sinuses seem fine! No conjestion, do major drainage. My throat otherwize feels fine too! No tickle near the tonsils, nore limph nodes, not even slightly sore!

What`s wronge with me?

  • Sounds like asthma. The rain does it to me. I have had asthma since I was 10, and I am almost 30 now. Everytime it rains (without fail), I have that same problem. You need an inhaler, and probably to get on a managment medicine (like advair) to get your symptoms under control. In the meantime, go to Walgreens and ask them to give you a box of bronchaid. It's about $13.00 (US), but take one of those babies and it will open you up more. I don't reccommend taking them long term because they make your heart race. Be sure you drink PLENTY OF WATER and eat a few banana's as well with any asthma medicine, but especially the bronchaid. Primatine mist tablets work also, but they aren't as strong as the bronchaid. GL to you:)
