I am a 34 year old female, have had problems with chronic pnemonia/bronchitis since i was a baby. I have always had a deep cough that gets really bad when I get a cold. I was diagnosed in April 07 with Whooping Cough after 13 ER visits complaining of not being able to catch my breath, extreme fatigue, and a horrible cough. It took app 6 months for it to clear up. Now, a year later, I am still having horrible coughing spells and and sometimes I am unable to catch a deep breath. Nothing helps. I hate to take cough med with codine, it just knocks me out and I cant function. Has anyone else around my age been diagnosed with WC and suffered long term effects from it? ANy help would be appreciated...I cannot find anything on the Web about scarring or long term issues after. I was sick for a tolat of app 9 months with this. Any help would be appreciated...Thank You....Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
