Strange long lasting cough

I have had a severe cough now going on over two weeks. It gets so bad that I feel as if I cant breath. After coughing and trying to catch my breath I feel like I am weesing and am trying to gasp for air. The cough is so bad that most of the time I end up coughing for about 15 to 30 seconds and most of the time to the point I feel like I am gaging. My husband has this same cough as well as another family member that does not live with us. My three year old had a severe cough for four days but then it went away and has not returned. I am a non smoker and am in good health. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what this might be?
