    Hoarseness

    I can barley talk, due to hoarseness, shortness of breath. My lungs actually feel heavy and have a burning sensation. I know that in the past I have headed straight for the ER. But, at this time, I want so much to stay out of the hospital if at all possible. I have a nebulizer and duo meds for it. I have been doing my own breathing treatments, however, I am not getting better. I took Mucinex a couple of hours ago, hoping to bring something up when I cough. Nothing yet. Just a very dry cough. Any suggestions to loosen this cough? Thanks
