Random spasmic coughing still going on, is is the lingering effects of whooping cough?


Posted by alysse

I got sick on Mother's day weekend. Spasmatic coughing, initally dry. I came back and was treated for a possible cold and given antibiotics. I improved somewhat and over the summer seemed to be fine except for the random once/twice a day cough, often would be spasmic, but random. I took muscinex as directed, but still random bouts. Could it be that Pertussis is still showing some after effects. They found nothing else physically, but can't explain the weird coughing bouts. I've never smoked, done drugs etc. and am moderately active (work out three times a week). When I first got sick, they thought is was just a bad cold, now they are thinking it was whooping cough.
