See your doctor: Coughing can be a very common symptom of worsening CHF. Certainly it could also be related to your recent bronchitis. I am certain you recognize that a diagnosis cannot be made without a physical exam. In other words not over the internet. Go see your doctor and he/she will treat you to resolve your symptom regardless of the cause.
