I had a ventral hernia repair and of all the weeks got this cough. Since I can't do much of anything else I wrote a piece on all the things that help your cough.
Spoiler alert - Chocolate is one of them.
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.
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.
