Hello Cruthes, I feel for you. Is there another Dr. that you can see? A family Dr. who could possibly send you to a Pulmonologist? Also, did your previous Dr. give you a diagnosis?

I am not sure I understand your post. I can't tell if you are saying that the inhaler helped or that it didn't help? Also what type of inhaler was it? If it was a rescue inhaler, that's not something that you should be using on a daily basis for the most part, maybe you need a maintenance inhaler. Did the dr say you have asthma? What started the cough when you first got it? Have you noticed anytimes when it is better or worse?
