terrible cough
in February this year I had a bad chest infection and then developed pleurisy. It took 2 lots of antibiotics and 7 weeks to
clear up.
In may I started with yet another bad cough,shocking when I lay down to begin with and first thing in the morning, didnt sleep at all for a week, coughing up green phelgm at start now copious amounts of gray phelgm, now coughing all day, hard to draw breath at times but not really got chest pains, only one spot niggles left side middle ribs. when I started the weired thing was when I breathed I could hear like bubbly odd wheezy
noises in my throat. phelgm been tested and clear. coughing
5 weeks now, never smoked and dont go near smoke. why am I still
so bad?

You will need to have a thorough physical exam to find out why you are still so bad.  A chest x-ray may be done to see if a lung problem is the cause.  A pulmonologist would be the type of specialist to tell if you need further testing to identify a lung problem.  Once the cause is known treatment can be started to get you well again.
