This summer I went to Europe this summer. It was great, except I had this persisting cough that kept dragging me down. I would cough uncontrollably gasping for air. I went to a pharmacy when I reached England( where they actually speak enough English to understand) and they gave me some syrup, that did not work. I Ended up going elsewhere to get somehthing else, yet that did not work either. A month and a half later I went to the doctor... he automatically assumed it was a regular cough, so he gave me some medicine and sent me on my way. Two weeks later, I went back with similar symptoms, like i was in a different stage, he gave me an inhaler and sent me on my way again. I have found two other people that have been having the same problem, both of which went to Europe. Today, I saw an artical in the paper about an outbreak of Whooping cough in Europe, especially in adults. I found this interesting and did some research. Everything is an exact match to what I still have two months later. I have diagnosed my problem.
