Started cold with whooping cough, phlegm. What is wrong?

Started a cold one month ago and coughed & gagged like whooping cough . Saw my doctor at the end of July.... checked me thoroughly and said to continue with the cough syrup and that it would take its course. I am still coughing with lots of phlegm coming up. Very annoying when you re working and have to leave to go and cough in the washroom. I easily choke on nuts , even drinking water sometimes. Is there something else doing on? Thank you.

Hi welcome to HCMForum. It is not wise to to stay for so long on cough syrup.
iadvise you to consult a chest physician for diagnosis and treatment. you may have to take Xray blood tests TC DC ESR AEC and some other routine tests for confermation.
Besides i advise you some diet recomendations as avoid taking fruits juices ice water ice cream cooldrinks brinjal and sea foods.
Take more of green leafy vegetables pulses sprouts egg meat to build up resistance.
Wishing for a uick recovery. and thanks for calling.
