Im new to this whole thing but I’m in desparate need of some support. Here is my story. I have been coughing since December. Went to the doctor in Feb. He sent me for X-ray which came out fine. He gave me some puffers and sent me on my way. I came back in a few weeks telling him cough is getting worse and can’t sleep. He gave me a cough syrop and told me to go for a blood work. Blood work all normal. Cough was getting worse. Then I started feeling heartburn and some stomach cramps and indigestion. I went back to see him 2 weeks ago and he told me I have acid reflux. He didn’t send me for any tests. Just gave me prescription for PPI. (Can’t rememwbr the name of the pills. Something Dexal.. 60mg). I have been taking those pills for about 7 days and heartburn is a bit better these last 2 days but my cough is out of control. It was dry and now it’s mucusy and wet and I can’t function. Just now I had a crazy coughing fit to a point where I almost threw up. I can’t help but wonder that cough is something else. Of course I goggled it and it says cough is a symptom of lung cancer.. I have anxiety and I think because of that my doctor doesn’t really take me seriously. My question is has anyone struggled with the cough? Was it really bad? And how long does it take to improve after you start taking your meds? I have read up on diet and started eating less and more often and avoiding trigger foods
thank you for your support !
I have very vivid dreams. So real that it could actually be happening. I had a great one last night. I was almost there in that place and time. It was glorious. Do meds cause vivid dreams? Do you have such clear dreams?
