I have noticed that I have been coughing a lot more recently. It seemed to start about middle of last summer and seems to be every morning when I get up. I am 63, 5 ft 7, 148lbs. I exercise daily on an eliptical, work 40 hours a week at a job where I m moving most of the time. I don t drink much, perhaps a wine cooler once or twice a month, don t take any meds, but do use vitamins and supplements. My bp last time it was checked was 116 over 60. When I wake I start coughing and it is productive, but clear. Most of the day I m not coughing to much, but when I do it is moving stuff. I don t smoke, though I did off and on for about 5 years from ages 18 to 22. Quit when I was 22 and have never smoked again, however, my late husband was a smoker till he died in 2003. There is a history of emphesema (sp) in my family, one of the reasons I quit. just wondering why I m all of sudden having this coughing. Otherwise, feel fine, sleep ok (never been a good sleeper, I m a fretter), eat fine and have good energy levels. What should I do, if anything.
