I'm a 17 year old girl. Since mid-2013, I have had a chronic cough that has not gone away for even a moment. It's a 24/7 thing, I feel the need to cough every minute of every day, like there's mucus stuck in my throat that I need to cough up but I can't.
I went to the doctor back in 2013 and she prescribed me Proair HFA (albuterol sulfate), an inhaler that I had to inhale two puffs three to four times a day. I was also prescribed Azithromycin 250MG tablets. Back in 2013, the cough was extremely bad and the medicine had helped it die down a little, but it never went away, and here I am now, two years later, still with it.
I keep telling my parents to take me to the doctor because I've had this thing for two years, but they always roll their eyes and tell me that I'm making a big deal out of nothing and they think I'm lying. They don't have to live with feeling sick 24/7. They don't know.
In addition to the cough, my nose has been very stuffy and I have been sneezing at least 20 times a day.
Sometimes when I cough, about once or twice a week, I start to gag and I spit up a yellowish-whiteish mucus.
Someone please tell me what I should do. I really can't take this any longer.
