Red face i tihnk i finally figured it out!!!

Most of you will prob know by now I have had constant coughs and chest infections since august last year.
I Had ecg's, chest x rays, 4 months of antibiotics, all sorts.
tried Chinese stuff, herbal stuff...

for the past three days I have had such a bad cough I really don't know how my lungs haven't popped inside out, cos I literally feel they are, and the stuff I cough up is white and sticky (sorry!!!)

So I googeld white sticky sputum and came up with....


POST NASAL DRIP CAUSED BY ALLERGIES!!!

This guy posted on some forum the exact problems I have, start with slight runny nose, goes to throat then chest then bam chest infection and bronchitis. He listed symptoms sounding just like mine.

now a few months ago i was treated by my doctors for an allergy that presented itself as a rash, and i don't remember having a cough while on those meds.

So yesterday I took Benadryl, and fell SLIGHTLY better today.
So took another this morning, and am staying off dairy products cos they can make sputum thicker. Drunk about 9-10 liters of water yesterday, have a one liter lucozade sports drinks bottle, and drinking cool water was the only thing that helped the cough a bit


just got to try and figure out what the allergy cold be too, as it causes a rash sometimes I am guessing something I ingest rather than something at home, been commented by my mother several times to "get rid of those bloody dogs they're full of germs and you shouldn't have dogs with asthma", because she isn't a doggy person. (other than being a right bitch at times lol)

sooooo I am HOPING this is the start of the end of the other half of my health problems.

good ole google!!
