Hi, first time poster. I'm a 45yo man, 215lbs, 6'/1.83m with a Aortic Arch Aneurysm @ 4.9cm. I ran a couple 5k's within the last month and after the last one, developed a cough. The cough is non-productive. Dry tickling right at the base of my neck (like if you were to put your fingers in the small area where your collarbones meet in the center, below the adam's apple). I've had it for two weeks without change. I saw a generalist and he gave me an inhaler but it does nothing to stop the cough. No allergy syptoms, no cold symptoms, no mucous. Just a dry cough. Oh, and it's positional. I sleep like a baby, no coughing. But as soon as I'm up and about it lasts all day. I feel fine otherwise. Could this be related to my aneurysm? Pressure related maybe? I've seen it listed as a possible symptom but I've never seen any postings from actual experience. I'm traveling in Holland and won't be able to see my doc for a few more weeks. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
