Help..........I like to do outdoor activities especially cycling or skiing, but with my constant respiratory problems it makes it rather hard. Help me get rid of my problem now. See my postings under respiratory problems and sinusitis.
Hi Jen, I to have had Whooping Cough, however a year later than you (2007), and after two sinus surgeries I am still feeling its after effects years later.
You described my symptoms almost exactly, especially when you mentioned,
"throughout the day I have phlegm at the back of my throat and all the way down my airways".
This is what really is troubling me the most because not only is it uncomfortable as you said, but it frequently makes me think that one day it will get so bad that I might not get a breath in!
I am really hoping that somehow you have cured this dreadful ailment and that you are willing to share some words of wisdom.
