Whenever I exhale deeply, I cough for a second or two (same thing happens if I laugh). I have had a consistently runny nose for over a month and I have never had this happen before. I went to a clinic and they put me on anti-biotics and that helped the cough significantly, but once the anti-biodics ran out, my cough came back as strong as ever. I was put on a second dose, and the same thing happened, cough got better but once I ran out of the pills it came back.
At first the cough was a dry cough for the first month, but over the past few days it has started to cough up some junk. If I exhale real deeply, I can hear like a congested sound in my chest and it makes me cough hard for a few seconds. I cannot go back to the Dr. for help as I have no insurance (can't afford it) and the clinic visits are too expensive for me to go back every couple of weeks. I have no idea what is wrong, but this is preventing me from doing just about anything as I am constantly fatigued due to all the coughing.
