I am a 46 year old female who has been in good health. I have had a cough every winter for the past 5 years. It is a tickle in my throat, non-productive, spastic, without wheezes. I cough when it is cold out and with exertion. This past year it has been at it
Since you're already in Denver, you may wish to consider having an evaluation at National Jewish Medical & Research Center, so you can have all the relevant specialists work together to help you get rid of this troublesome, nasty cough. They really do a wonderful job and are in your city! They also participate with many insurance plans & you can get more info at their website, www.NationalJewish.org, or by calling their LungLine nurses (phone number is also on their website).
Given all that you have had done already, it sounds like it would be useful for some of the specialists at National Jewish to help you pull all the information together, as well as check things which may have been overlooked or misread. Best of luck! Aloha, Starion
I agree 100% with Starion!! By all means, go over to Nat'l Jewish Medical & Research Center! You can call first, or just walk into their adult triage. Their lung line number is 1-800-222-LUNG(5864), & then press "5" to speak with a lung line nurse.
My husband and I, like Starion, were greatly helped by the kind, knowledgable doctors, nurses, etc. at Nat'l Jewish!
They can help you! They are experts at all kinds of respiratory problems, including TB! Go there Friday (between 8am & 4:30pm,the earlier the better), because they're closed on weekends.
