Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of persistent cough and back pain which is due to chronic lung infection or bronchitis. It seems to be due to poor and compromised immunity of body. Need not to worry much. I would suggest you to visit pulmonologist once and get it examined. You should go for pulmonary function tests and x-ray chest as well to check exact level of infection. Back pain is due to myalgia and prolonged exertion due to coughing. Start treatment only after proper prescription. Drink plenty of water. Take hot milk rich in turmeric as it will booster immunity. You need inhaled bronchodilators and antihistamine drug. You should use mist humidifiers in room. You should take cough expectorants as well.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
