I have a dry cough that at times turns into a violent coughing episode of gagging, watery eyes, wheezing, and one side of my face feels paralyzed. After an attack I usually have sinus drainage...the coughing has been worse at night in the past, but here lately, it s just as bad during the day. Afterwards, I feel like my coughing reflex is diminished and it s hard to cough. My abdominal muscles and intercostals are SO sore! The coughing spells are embarrassing and annoying. I had one while driving and it scared me to death- I could barely see to drive! I ve tried cough medicine and cough drops...thought I had found the answer in deep breathing techniques, but the relief was short lived. Please help!
