Pulmonologist 's  Response
Hello and thank you for asking in HCM.
I have gone through your concern
The cough more than 2 months is considered as chronic cough.The first to explore are the lung diseases.
For this you have to do some tests :
Chest X Ray
Prick tests
Pneumoalergens
Spirometry test

According to the results the pulmonologist will decide for further treatment.

Best wishes

I feel like I have fluid in my lungs after I work out. Why is this? I m not chugging a bunch of water during the workout or right before the work out. I used to smoke (I quit about 2.5 years ago) and the feeling I get in my chest reminds me of when I would smoke to much in a short amount of time(I am a Nurse and you never know when your next break will come!). I have a nonproductive cough and the feeling usually last a couple of hours after I work out.
