What could be the reason for Chronic Cough ?

My husband has been cosistently coughing for two weeks. As he is coughing he has to bend over and sometimes drops to the floor. As a result he starts to suffer from severe hip pains associated with the cough. What should he do?

Hi Chundria, Welcome to HealtchcareMagic Forum.
How old is he? Is he a smoker? Does he have fever? Is it a Dry or Productive Cough? Since it is from 2 weeks, he has a Respiratory Tract Infection, Either Upper or Lower. Take him to a Chest Physician and get him examined, he will need a chest x ray. Until the cause is found out and treated, he will continue coughing, The Pain in hips is actually due to the stress of coughing.

I Wish him Good Health, Take Care.
