After struggling for about 13 years with a daily cough, I finally took a good friend's advice (thanks, hiker-mama) and went to a pulmonary specialist. Turns out, I may have asthma! All these years I've been struggling and I could have been doing something about it! Can you believe it?
I go today to have tests done to see what is bringing on the asthma attacks which I always called "coughing attacks" but I guess it has more to do with the bronchial tubes than the throat itself.
Live and learn.....I always thought this was what I called a "familial" cough because my sister coughs and my mother coughs. Good news - mom and sis - we may have found the culprit. I'll let you know!
I'll be back in a few days to keep you informed....I'm sure everyone is on pins & needles to find out - ha!
