so for the past week, I have been having this itchy feeling in my throat right underneath my larynx. I am having coughing fits every few minutes and every time I breathe in deeply it triggers a coughing fit. it is a dry cough for the most part with a little bit of phlegm, but I am also having on and off cold symptoms (runny nose with clear mucus, sneezing). some of the coughing fits have gotten so bad that I have not been able to breathe and almost thrown up. it doesn't seem to be getting better with time and I am getting tired of coughing. what could this be?
*the day before this all started, I was having an argument with my boyfriend and we were screaming at each other and I strained my voice from screaming. I don't know why this would last for a week though.
*I also have a recurrent ear infection in one ear that I noticed came back. this may be a factor.
*I noticed that it clears up a lot more when I am outdoors than when I am indoors. but it comes back in any indoor environment, whether it's my room, or a classroom, or any other building.
*I have no history of allergies.
