Couldn't find what you looking for?


My mom has this cough that first appeared in early July. It started out as an occasional dry cough, but since then has developed into a severe cough with phlegm. At this point, she can barely finish a sentence without coughing. I was away for one weekend, so she was home alone. She had no need to talk, so when I got back her cough sounded better. Back at stage one. Since then, it has gotten worse than it ever was.

So bottom line, she can rarely finish a sentence without a coughing fit.

Note: She is a smoker, and has been for about 11 years.


I forgot to ask the question -.-

Any ideas what it is? Should she go to the doctor for it?
