I posted this problem before but I cant seem to find the previous thread so I thought I would make a new one.
Does anybody out there know what could cause a rather persistant, congested cough like the one I have? Its been around for approx. 2 months now. The cough comes and goes but when it does happen, I am trying to cough up whitish phlegm. I have no fever at all. I am not a smoker. I have been diagnosed with hiatus hernia in the past, and I know that this "could" cause a cough, but I have never had a long term coughing problem in the past. As I stated before, I have tried Benlyn (for congestion) before going to bed and it has helped to keep down the coughing. Strenuous exercise does not cause me to get out of breath and I dont wheeze. Might this coughing problem sound to have something to do with asbestos exposure in the past maybe??
Can anybody make a good recommendation as to what I can ask my nurse practitioner to check for? The problem is starting to worry me since it is not characteristic for me to have a long term congested phlegm cough like this in the past...thanks for reading....
