I am 27. And have been actually smoking since 16. Here and there before then. I know I need to quit but every time I try to cut back or quit something comes up. And I can't do it.. My son will be 2 in Aug. was hospitalized for 2.5 days for a serve asthma attack in Dec when he was 18 months old(he was with his dad when it started, possibly could have been prevented, or lessened if he got neb-which until then he only needed when sick. They never said he had asthma!) I am now having my 5yr old daughter tested at the end of July for asthma and allergies because she constantly sounds like she got crap in her nose. That never goes away, breathes with mouth open, and has been using inhaler when sick for a year..
Anyways, I'm curious about myself.. Again, I am a smoker, I smoke outside and have quit smoking in my car(case wondering for kids sake, yes I know it's on my clothes) for little over 2 weeks, I have had a uncontrollable, unproductive cough in early early morning to early mornings. It kinda feels like there's something in my throat, but the worst feeling is that my throat feels like it's closing. I never cough anything up. And if I have a cold or allergies I usually cough something up. But with this I get nothing. It get so bad I wake I boyfriend up in the morning and he is a very very very hard sleeper.. And I mean nothing wakes him up. I've tried getting up for a drink and just plain coughing... One morning I decided to try my daughters inhaler. Which helped greatly! Since then I have used it every morning! I don't know if it's breaking whatever up of if its opening my throat. I'm wondering if anyone with asthma has had this. If it could be asthma or Something else.. The only other symptom of asthma I can think of is when I smoke outside during winter I feel like I'm wheezing., and completely outta breath if I do really physical workout.
