Question: I have a persistant cough and I noticed that cough symptoms are very high in zip 45324. Why is that? I noticed that along the California coat the cough symptoms are low. Why the difference in the areas?

Brief Answer:
Air in West Ohio might be more allergic.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Zip code 45324 belongs to West Ohio.
Most common cause for persistent coughing in perticular area (zip code 45324 in your case) is allergic cough.
So in my opinion, air of west Ohio is more allergic for you which is causing cough.
So to confirm this, you should get done PFT (Pulmonary Function Test) when you are in Ohio and have cough.
If PFT shows obstructive Airway defect then allergic cough is the cause for your persistent symptoms in West Ohio.
Please let me know if you had PFT done in the past.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

I have developed a persistent cough after I was diagnosed with a lung infection on 16 August 2011(it was the first time ever that I had lung infection, I , 41yrs old). On 23 Auguse the doctor told me because my lungs have been sensitised it has developed to mild ashma enven though my lungs are clear. I work in an emotionaly toxic environment and is daily under huge stress caused by my Director. Can stress at work cause my chronic coughing (which sometimes make me vomit). I look forward to your answer. Kind regards Crystal

Hi I was diagnosed with pleurisy on Monday, was prescribed amoxicillin 500mg three times daily. My symptoms improved and I feel fine unless I do something physical, eg taking my dog for a short walk, resulted in a persistant cough, shortness of breath and general tiredness and aches in shoulders and chest. Planned on returning to work tomorrow? I am primary school teacher.

At 47, I just started to have heart pain. The pain seems to be 3 maybe 4 times a day lasting 3 minutes to an hour. Almost like spasms. I am a light smoker and as of now, have stopped now although I think it is too late. I have no persistant cough, my eating is very good and I ride my bike 10 miles a day. Pretty much a weight lifter. My blood pressure is 127/82. Needless to say, I am very scared now. I have no health insurance and frankly not working at the moment. So, am I dying here or what?

Hi doc, my 80 year old mom was suffering from acute bronchitis with persistent cough. She was administered various antibiotics in the hospital after her sputum and serum examination reveled the following:
Sputum: Shows many gram positive cocci in pairs, chains and clusters
Serum : Influenza A virus present
While she has been relieved from the hospital, she has been prescribed Nebulization with Levolin and Budecort twice daily. She is type II diabetic with 3rd stage CKD. Could you please suggest whether Levolin and Budecort will have any side effect on her and how long should she continue with the nebulization- 2, 3 or six months,
