Anyone had pertussis?

befor christmas my 9 year old and I had pertussis, she got better pretty quickly, not so for me....I still have coughing fits, sore throat sometimes and I wheeze at night like I have azma. Anyone else had pertussis? online i read it could last 6-8 weeks. I seem to be stuck indefinately with the symptoms I have now.

  • I did at 14. I broke 2 ribs and coughed and wheezed for about 2 months.
