Its been two scary months with a really bad cough. I went to the ER after the first month and they said it was a virus, a week later went to urgent care and they gave me antibiotics for bacterial infection, two weeks later got worse went to urgent care got a steroids shot and asthma treatment went home with steroids, albuteral and continue to lose oxigen when coughin randomly. I am very scared because it happens any time while sitting, talking, eating, sleeping and I think I'm going to stop breathing each time. My eyes turm shot red and I get like headed with a desperate sound of getting my breath loke if I was being chocked. I just went to the ER after a scary episode and both my lung and throat x-ray came back normal. Has anybody dealt with anything similar to this? If so please help. I will call an ear, nose, and throat specialist tomorrow. I also feel an acidic flavor and flemg sitting on my throat All the time.

Update to my previous reply. After similar experience as you had, with my doctors/specialists. -Augmentin, Amoxicillin, prednisone, Roxithromycin (taken in conjunction with Amoxicillin) and tests
After another lung x ray(spots) and a blood test, I have finally an answer, the test result Adult WHOOPING Cough(commonly 100 day flu)
It is lethal if left untreated (especially around babies/infants/elderly etc).I am responding(gasping/chocking subsided-breathing easier) to my current MEDICATION AZITHROMYCIN (7days).I hope this posting will help, if you still looking for answer to this stressful &mental draining conditions. God luck, - get well
