What causes cough with no mucus and difficulty breathing ?

My throat has a hollow feeling as if I was using a cough drop. It is also very scratchy. I am constantly coughing, but lightly. No mucus is coming up, but at times feel as if I am difficulty breathing. This keeps me up at night. What could that be?

Hi Dr.Dinesh I have a problem with breathing. I am allergic to dust and I feel breathing difficult. I am using Levolin rotacaps which helps me to catch my breath. but for past 3 weeks, I am continuously using rotacaps as Iam feeling difficulty in breathing. Sometimes I have cough but its dry. I don t have fever. Also, I recently went under an operation for the treatment of thyroglossal cyst. Please suggest me what should I do.

Hello, 24 yr old male. I ve been coughing 2.5 wks now... sluggish, and fatigued the first wk. no other recognizeable symptoms, that i have been aware. pretty bad cocugh, to the point where co-workers say i have a bad smokers cough. I do not smoke though. Been running this nasty A/C in my apartment that past wk or so to fight the heat, but turned it off noticing my cough was not going away. Sore muscles etc from coughing. Went from yellow mucus, to white, to almost none during the days, but yellow in the morning and at night? the last day or two, starting to feel a slight constriction when i breathe. No insurance at the moment, at what point do I need to go and see a doctor, because my body cannot fight whatever it is off by itself? and any idea as to what may be going on?
