I have been experiencing a barking cough for 5 days now. It is a hacking, barking cough - deep cough in my chest. My chest has been feeling heavy but not congested so much. I haven't been coughing up any phlegm. I have been experiencing this cough and in addition to it wheezing which is increasingly worse at night. I have been feeling cold, shivery even when near a heater. No real fever. It's day five and now (tmi) I am experiencing diarrhoea and nausea with the sudden urge to vomit (but cannot do so). I haven't been eating properly for five days now worry what I eat is going to make me worse. The doctor I saw on day three suggested possible bronchitis or just asthma. Maybe time for a second option with another doctor...
Barking cough for 5 days, ongoing?
Added 11 Aug 2015:
Also, have been experiencing sleeplessness for hours, typically awake until at least 2-3am due to the constant need to cough. I was prescribed by the doctor an inhaler and Prednisolone (three day course only) which was a daily tablet, that ceased today.
