I've suffered from an intermittent barking cough for years, lasting for anything from a few days to a few months each time. I also sometimes wheeze, although for less than an hour each time and usually at night.

Could this be asthma? It has been considered by my GP a few times but my peak flow (checked in the surgery) has always been normal.

I have a barking cough at the moment but I know it will eventually settle. It's been there now for more than 6 weeks. Is it worth checking with my GP again?
