A 61-year-old male asked:

I'm on week 2 of a horrible cough. no other symptoms. mostly dry, unless i've recently drank something. no fluids, flem or nasal drainage comes up. it's a deep cough, typically includes coughing 5-10 times. sometimes i'm almost gasping for air.

Cough : Get an examination soon as your cough should be improving by now and gasping for air sounds serious

I would advise inquiring about pertussis and reactivity of the airway.
