Hello all I hope some one can help. I have had a dry barking cough on and off for months, maybe 12 minths. Been to the docs a few times and was told my own body would fight off the weezing. Never has done ! Went back to the docs today as I have been up most nights barking like a dog, dry and sore and uncontrolble. I am 56 and a smoker. She asked me to blow in a tube and my result was I had the lungs of a 65 year old. She did say her test was not accurate so I am having the other test in a few weeks as that is the earliest I can get in. I was also sent for chest X-ray which I had today. Doc started me on reflux meds but said it is likely to be copd and there is no cure. I am sat here petrified, the X-ray will not be sent to my GP for 7 to 10 days. The cough is oainful and hurrendous. It is at an all time worse even the wheezing keeps me awake it is that noise. And very breathless.
