Pat A., NM

I have had a deep cough for about 3 to 4 years. A CT scan shows nothing except concha bullosa, but nothing that requires treatment. A chest x-ray along with a visit to the allergist produced the same results. Still, the cough comes and goes but stays most of the time. Coughing jags sap my strength. I'm tired a lot but just keep on trucking. What a way to live!
