I moved into a rented house, and within a short time started having coughing fits. One was bad enough that my wife insisted I go to the ER. After a couple of weeks, the severity of the fits subsided, but for the first time in my life I had asthma symptoms, wheezing and coughing. When I was finally able to move out of that house, the wheezing stopped, and the coughing also stopped, except in two cases. First, there'a a month or two ever fall when I cough, so some new seasonal allergy. The thing that bothers me, though, is that I'm no longer capable of laughing hard, because if I do, it makes me cough. I've put off seeing a doctor about this, because I doubt there's effective treatment. Now I'm finally planning to make an appointment, but I'd like to know something about it before I talk to the doc. Do I have asthma?
