Question: I have a deep congested cough, mostly at night while trying to sleep. I have no fever or body aches, just slight sinus congestion and the deep cough. Could it be bronchitis?

Brief Answer:
a common cold

Detailed Answer:

I can understand your concern

As you explain the history I don't think this might be a bronchitis. Usually this appearance with these symptoms is due to viral situation. Bronchitis is with more severe signs and symptoms instead.

I would recommend you to continue the current treatment which are relievers of the airways and you will feel better again after some days and a lot of liquids too.

Hope to have been helpful

Take care,
