Since I was three years old I have been have horrible coughing fits that would have me doubled over dry heaving not able to breathe. It is very bad at night, to the point I can't sleep. I have been going to doctor after doctor, being told everything from allergies to whooping cough to bronchitis. It is the exact same thing every time, so I should not have a different diagnosis every time i go to the doctor. I joined the military, and it has only got worse. I went to the doctors here, and they sent me for asthma testing. When nothing came from a methacholine challenge (everything looked good) they decided to bring me back for an exercise challenge. I have the coughing fits during physical activity, but it is way worse at night laying in bed. I do not think it is athletic induced asthma either. I have an Inhalor, but it does not help at all, just makes me very shaky. I also am tired all the time, never feel like i can got enough sleep when i wake up in the morning, I have in the past blacked out for a few seconds at at time, I often cough up mucus, and when I have a bad coughing fit, I taste blood although i do not see any. If anybody has any ideas I can take to the doctor I would really appreciate it!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
