I'll keep this as quick as possible... Im just looking for any suggestions / opinions.
So 9 weeks ago, i woke up with a cough, mild fever for a few days. no cold etc. just flu type symptoms. the cough was really bad and chesty for around 4 weeks... it then started getting better, to a point. But since 6 weeks, ive had this tickly throat still. Now its at a point where, i'll wake up in the morning and it seems fine. But without fail, about 30mins after breakfast, the irritation and coughing bout starts. Once i get that morning out of the way, its just tickling all day with mild coughing. and sometimes, if im speaking at length to someone, my throat gets clogged up, and need to clear it. Its still there enough that it bothering me.
Ive been to see doctor more than once... Ive had chest Xray, results were all clear. blood tests, all fine. ECG etc, nothing out of the norm.
Im 34 a smoker, but socially... not that it makes a difference. but i really dont smoke a lot. im slightly over weight. but otherwise healthy.
where do i go from here?! is there anything else i should be asking of my doctor... should i just leave it. I mean 9 weeks is so long in my opinion. Doesnt help when friends see me and say "you've STILL got that cough"
