I can;t sleep at night because i'm always coughing.
Seeks medical help if your cough does not stop. Don't take cough drops.,drink plenty of water. Use salt water (warm water) to gargle your throat. Don't eat 2 hours before sleep. Use humidifier. Good luck!
Two suggestions for you. Use a nasal rinse...like Med --something (so sorry can't remember the name) that comes with a syringe... just follow the instructions. AND...take an antihistamine (like Benedryl) at bedtime. Between the two it should help. Tell you what will work with the smoking. Quit COLD TURKEY...you will most likely go through "hell" for 3 days...but by the 4th day it will be easier...also, coffee-caffiene and nicotine are interdependant on each other... quit both. Yes, I know, you think you're gonna die, but you won't! 🙂 I am speaking from experience... you CAN do it if you really WANT to... no one says its easy, but you CAN do it. Good luck!!
Seeing a dr if this doesn't work (re the cough) is really a GOOD idea!
Do you smoke? My advice is to have your vitamin D levels checked. If they're low, start supplementing with a high-quality supplement. Two new studies and one relatively new clinical review have established a link between low vitamin D and an increased risk of lung cancer in smokers. source: http://vitamind3blog.com/2013/03/vitamin-d-lung-disease-cance/
If you’re coughing so much that your chest hurts and you’re getting a bad night’s sleep, consider a cough suppressant such as dextromethorphan, found in Delsym, DexAlone, and Vicks Formula 44.When a person has a cough that is thick with phlegm, Mosnaim says it helps to take a cough expectorant such as guaifenesin, found in Humibid, Mucinex, Robitussin Chest Congestion, and Tussin. Expectorants help to thin out the mucus so one can more easily cough it up, Coughs caused by the common cold usually go away in a few weeks. Chronic, persistent coughs may be caused by underlying medical problem such as allergies, asthma, or acid reflux -- or by the medications you take. To lose those coughs you need to treat the underlying problem.Talk to your doctor if your cough lasts longer than two to four weeks, or if you are coughing up blood, or if you’re having other symptoms such as weight loss, chills, or fatigue.
