I started out last Monday with a very sore throat for a couple days, then it turned into a cold (stuffy nose, sneezing, headache, etc.). Then, on Thursday night I was up all night with a bronchitis-like cough and Friday woke up with a fever of 101. I went to the doctor and, after listening to my lungs for a couple seconds, told me they were clear and I just have a virus that has to run its course. Well, on Saturday I started coughing constantly (feel like there's something in my throat, a tickle or something) and it hasn't stopped (is now Monday night). I can't sleep because as soon as I lay down, I start coughing. I also have several coughing fits during the day where I will cough so long and hard that I gag. The doctor gave me Robitussin w/ Codeine for at night and Tessalon pearls for during the day, but they don't seem to be working at all. I just looked at my throat with a flashlight and there are white spots on my tonsils. Is this familiar to anyone? Should I go back to the doctor? Any home remedies that work for coughing? I'm desparate to try anything.

I feel your pain you poor thing. I am suffering the same thing with this stupid coughing. I started out sneezing my brains out and stuffy nose. I have sinus problems anyways. Then I could feel myself getting tired and weak and just plain ole feel like crap and I started to develop this itchy/scratchy tickle in my throat that would throw me into fits of coughing. I could feel this mucus crap in the throat and I'd cough trying to clear it out but it would never quite actually come up. Still won't. I've had this stupid thing for a few days now and its driving me nuts. I wake up off and on during the night from this tickle and I'd start coughing. My b/f bought me this stuff called Delsym but its sickly sweet tasting and I've been taking Mucinex DM and a lot of Vitamin C. Seems to help. Of course this thing has affected my voice so I sound hoarse although its getting better. Over the weekend though I sounded and felt like total crap. I just want this thing to go away.
