Ok, chocolate make me cough!!!! I thought it was just me. Last week on Friday I had some chocolate and started to cough. I mentioned to a guy why I was coughing and he said it does the same thing to him. It's always the smooth chocolate like those little Dove candies and not something like a Hersheys bar.

one of my meds (ACE inhibitor) causes a slight cough. one time, a med i was on, caused a whole lot more, doctor took me off that med, for another. but wouldn't you know it, the insurance refused to pay for it, so the doctors office told them i must have it, (i'll surmise they said,for the reduction in coughing)....they paid for it again.

now for the umpteeth time, i am on yet another med, this time...... angiotensin II receptor antagonists (Losartan).....the fun never stops.

My pharmacist takes some type of BP medicine that makes her cough. She says she has to walk around with a water bottle ALL the time.

i'd rather have the cough, then the diarrhea some cause... you can always run for a glass of water....you cannot always run to the toilet.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha. I always think of that Seinfeld episode where his girlfriend is always naked in his apartment. Jerry has a fit when she crouches down and coughs

Doc was messing with my meds after my angiogram. He was walking by and stood in the door and listening to me. Nurse told me later anyway.

That afternoon he changed my meds and the annoying cough I'd had for a day was suddenly gone. No clue which one he switched, but it was a side effect of one of them.

At the time, I was just happy not to be worm food.

I hear ya. The ACE inhibitors are phenomenal medications for blood pressure, heart failure, kidney protection, and are always attempted first, but the cough makes them unbearable

As a side note too......


A dry persistent cough suddenly appearing is also a symptom of an impending heart attack as well. Along with "stiff painful joints" and tightness in the chest and/or shoulders.


Almost flu-like

But the cough usually comes on as a "clearing of the throat" and then a mild but persistent nusence ....I can't spell nucence.....

No problemo.....


Two times I've been scared in my life.....

The day the doc called me and told me the results of a colonoscopy and how close I was to a different phone call......


The time (10:54 am ) that the doctor walked in and said I was having a heart attack and I was being admitted and walked out. This one bar none has scared me the most in life. Even over staring at a live anti personnel mine in Kosovo set to go off.


It wakes you up right now to how mortal you really are.

The accident I was in a year later didn't phase me like either of those.
