See a Dr: If you have a cough and a feeling like your chest is closing in, I would go back to see your Dr again. Let him/her know that the symptoms are worse at night. I always tell my patients to follow up if the symptoms worsen or fail to improve. Sometimes we can't diagnose an illness on the initial visit, or the illness can get worse due to any # of factors, so return to your Dr for a recheck.
