I got a little sick two months ago. I had mucous in my chest and just a bit more than normal post nasal drip. It sucked and it has gotten better, but not completely gone away. Some days I wake up and hear and feel the mucous bubbling in my right side(its been just the right side feeling like that since day 1), then other days I'm almost normal. Ever since then I have been sensitive to strong smells, and get into coughing fits. I sound like I am a smoker when I cough mixed with being sick... Like its a deep sounding cough sometimes that hurts my chest, then a lot of times there's also a wheezing sound when I cough.
I have no other symptoms though... Even when it was bad I just felt tired but no fever or anything. Two weeks after I first began I broke out in hives for a week straight and needed steroids plus Benadryl and Zantac. It got a tiny bit better but not by much. I don't want to go to the doctor because I hate going, but people keep pestering me about going. My husband really wants me to go but I would feel like an idiot when I've got no other symptoms.
Anybody been through this?
