Please help I feel like I have got a heavy chest like a need to cough a lot but don't have a cough? I'm feeling very worried?
It's a sign: "Heavy chest" is a sign to go to the E.R. if one's doctor is not readily available. Chest heaviness or pain can be a heart attack. One should not drive herself (it's safer to go by ambulance). If she turns out not to have heart attack symptoms, the E.R. will also have evaluated for chest problems such as a collapsed lung or a pneumonia. A chest x-ray, EKG, and labs can be done quickly at the E.R.

For these kids asthma meds are helpful in eliminating the cough while traditional cough meds may do nothing or worsten the sx. Your dr may be able to show subtile changes in pulmonary function tests.
