Has anyone else experienced this?
I really started to notice this in November, the need to cough (like a tickle, need to clear your throat) - dry cough, not like have a cold. The urge to cough really got bad in December and is still lingering, but not as bad. It seems to come and go with intensity, changes with activity, but it can also get agitated when I am not doing much, if it was flaired up quit a bit from day prior. Rest/taking it easy seems to help but has yet to go away. I do have very tight muscles all over in my back, neck, shoulders, ribs, clavical, I think you get it, I have numerous bad trigger points/ropey bands/knotts. I noticed if certain accupressure points or trigger points are pressed, the cough calms or stops for a little while.
I'm wondering if this sounds like costochrondritis? I do easily overuse my body (arms specifically) at times and it causes flair ups in my fibromyalgia -myofascial pain syndrome. (I have doctors conflicting if its fibromyalgia or MPS, one said one thing and another said opposite)... what can be done about this? I've tried numerous modalities in the past but I've never had this specific issue, prefer to not try multiple providers and directly start at whom would be more beneficial to see and directly start at whom would be more beneficial to see.
Any insight is greatly appreciated! Thank you.
Good morning, from the land of "I slept 5 hours, but God forbid Hubby not wake me to ask me if we should check the cats, then he goes back to sleep and I am awake to deal with cats...." BTW, no neighborhood cats out in this lovely 10*F (-4*C) with nasty wind child weather. He was worried about ours. Who sleep on a sleeping bag and are probably sleeping more than I get to, an din more comfort....
Well, I slept 9 hours! Yeah... I was meant to be at my mom's 90 minutes ago. As you can see... Not hurrying over there. I need an hour to wake up, shower, dress, and just care enough to not go back to bed when it's this kind of fibro-achy day.She's been asking me if I'm okay. A lot. Everyone is wondering what's next. Like, she tried calling me an abuser and nearly had me investigated by cops,...
