Brief Answer:
Could be Bronchitis.

Detailed Answer:

I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
You seem to be suffering from Acute Bronchitis and that could be the reason for your cough.
I would recommend you in such case a Chest X-ray to be sure it's not a pneumonia or tuberculosis.
If all normal this could be a simple Bronchitis.
I usually recommend in such case a cough syrup like Ventryl D to be taken 7.5 ml thrice daily for 2 weeks.
My most patients respond well to this treatment.
I hope it helps you.
Share my opinion with your doctor before you act upon it.

Hi, I m a 55 yr old white female, 5`4 , 180 lbs. I had childhood asthma and bronchitis, and were given steroids frequently. I seemed to grow out of it at age 17. During the last 14 yrs I ve developed Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue, RA, for 14 months my SED rate stayed at 53-108 and they could not find out why, Cushing s Syndrome, neuropathy of the feet, and most importantly - Hypogammagobulinemia. I rec d IGG iv s monthly for 4 yrs, then lost insurance 6 yrs. ago. I m disabled and on Medicare, I haven t rec d IV s in 6 yrs. During that time I ve had pneumonia 17 times, once was septic pneumonia, constant sinus problems, PCP infection and a rare form of arthritis associated with the hypo (the Dr. couldn t tell me the name of it). I have contacted Medicare, foundations and pharm companies trying to get help to start treatment again. Reaching out to any possible help has been met with apathy and no one would try to point me in the right direction. I m really worried and would like to know my chances of surviving if I can t get the IGG treatments. Thank you very much for your time.

Every time I take a bath, I experience shortness of breath. It is painful and cough inducing to breathe deeply. I had asthma as a child and several case of pneumonia. Do you think this is caused by the moisture in the air somehow inhibiting O2/CO2 transfer in my alveoli?
