Nagging cough. Short of breath. Finished TPE. Further?

Hi, I have had a cough that has progressed into a nagging cough but I do not have a cold and it is not a productive cough. I do not have allergies either. I am short of breath a lot and get very weak. I have Myasthenia Gravis and have just finished my 3rd round of TPE and don t know if it is releated or not. Can t believe they are correlated. I am a non-smoker in my mid 40 s so I can t relate it to that either.
