My daughter has this horrible cough without any other symptoms (except an occasional sneeze). Her preschool teacher told me that her cough sounded just like another child's in her class who, her parents just found out, has whooping cough. Supposedly she would have been contagious a few weeks ago... Anyway, I feel like I'm just being paranoid since that teacher told me that... She was actually just seen by her doctor this morning for a flu shot (and my husband mentioned the cough but I guess she wasn't doing it much this morning). It has been getting worse through the day and during her nap (which only lasted about 30 minutes because she kept waking herself up with the cough), she was making weird wheezing sounds and having moments of apnea... I called the doc, who I think must think I'm crazy and paranoid, too, because she just saw her this morning and she seemed fine. What do you think? In my place would you have her tested?
