Choking baby syndrome was it’s first name in 1975. My mom said she would tape record me as a tiny infant in 1963 with this choking cough at night. By day – no cough, clear lungs, no wheeze. She would play the tape but they didn’t believe her.
Growing up, I was given very dangerous concoctions made with codeine. In the late 70’s after this type of asthma was discovered I was able to start getting proper treatment.
I have been battling a flare up of my condition for almost two weeks. After trying to get it under control I will have to start some pred. I hate that crap. I start to cry just thinking about it. I will cry a bunch more after I’m on it.
Please forgive my next week of posts from the crazy pred lady. If you know someone who has nightime choking cough attacks please see a pulmonary specialist. There is good daily therapy that really improves quality of life.
P.S. Yes, in the past I have tried to drink until I stopped coughing, it doesn’t work 🙂 That is what we boozers do. Apply alcohol to any situation no matter how unrelated.
