So all in all, I should be ok. Or at least, in the clear.
At least, until this cough of mine kept getting more annoying.
What's annoying is that this cough isn't normal. See, when you cough, you cough, and that's it. When I cough, I have urge the to vomit. It's like, everytime I cough, I'm somehow triggering my gag reflex. so here, you have me with this itch in my throat, but I'm trying to suppress it so I don't feel like puking. Or at least, find somewhere where I can cough and heave like an idiot for a little bit.
It used to happen once every few weeks, then once a week, a couple times a week, and now I can't go a day without experiencing this. And it's not just one cough, I need to have a coughing session to order to clear out my throat and experience that gagging sensation before my body feels back to normal.
I don't think it's life threatening, but it's getting to be a bother.
And it won't be fun if I actually vomit all over the place.
I'm not quite sure what started it. I think it might have something to do with my jaw or my neck muscles acting up. Because sometimes when I wear my mouth guard, the next morning I spend the day with that urge to cough.
But the cough also has happened when I've just finished eating.
Or after a work-out.
Or as I'm typing this blog post.
Yay, for consistency. Though when I feel fatigued I'm more likely to get that urge to cough.
I wonder if my brother next door can hear me hacking my lungs off.
As much as I'd like to go see my doctor about this, what can he really do? Send me off to get more x-rays? As I've learned the hard way, these x-rays aren't showing anything. They would have picked up something long ago if my lungs had problems.
Plus my doctor is on vacation until the middle of August.
So I'm not sure what to do. I have no idea what this means but a cough that makes you want to throw up can't be great. I don't think it's indicative of anything and when I casually mentioned it to some of my friends in med school, they had no idea what it meant.
So it can't be that bad.
Or I die.
We'll see what happens. I probably should be more concerned about my health but I'm tired of worrying and wondering.
Even if the coughing is starting to bother my lungs too.
