cant stop coughing
hithere117 posted:
I have had this horrible cough for over 2 weeks now and there is a terrible pain in my side, my right side, everytime I lay down to try and sleep the coughing takes over, Also lots of urine comes out. the only way i can continue breathing is to cough.I get about 2 hrs of sleep a night. It really hurts to cough, I lost my spleen 2 yrs ago, Im go into coughing spasms every two minutes. Any suggestions?

You need to see a doctor asap. If cost is an issue, find a free or low-cost clinic in your area. You could also consider a local hospital emergency room as they must treat you regardless of your ability to pay.

I hope you can get treatment and relief soon.
