I have dry cough much of the time. Everytime I breathe something in that I'm allergic to, or I eat something I'm allergic to, I get this dry cough even when there's no attack... even when I'm exercising it comes. I really have enough of it!3/27/2012 at 02:57 AM

I will cough so long and so hard that I have a headache, that my chest muscles start to hurt. I've pulled muscles in my back and chest before. I've had coughing fits so bad that I can't breathe. By the time my inhaler takes effect, I'm sometimes completely exhausted. 5/24/2010 at 05:20 PM
