Thank you for writing back.
1. Violent or continuous coughing may cause chest pain
2. Get a chest auscultation and a Chest X-ray done. If these are normal and if you have normal blood tests no eosinophilia
), no fever or breathlessness then you may get a prescription for supportive medication
from your physician. Get an ear examination and a PTA (Pure Tone Audiogram) and an Impedance Audiogram (Tympanogram) done. If symptoms do not subside, get a Sinus X-ray / plain Scan CT done.
3. Anti inflammatory, anti-allergic, mucolytic medication along with a medicated gargle and cough suppressant along with steam inhalation may help.
4. Keep a local physician's informed. Anti hypertensive (blood pressure) medicines may also be responsible, if you are on any. A Post Nasal drip
(PND) due to sinusitis and acid reflux
ix also worsens symptoms.
5. Use warm clothing and drink warm liquids. Avoid sour, spicy and cold liquids. If this is only a hyper-reactive airway after a viral infection, it will subside in a few weeks.
I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
