In brief: See your doctor
Your symptoms may be more than an acute respiratory infection, although pertussis is a possibility.
Depending on your environmental history – you may be developing a form of chronic lung disease. Please see your doctor for an evaluation; he or she will potentially order pulmonary function testing. If you have any signs of respiratory distress, feeling like you can’t breathe at all, call 911!
