panicmom07 Posted October 9, 2007 Share Posted October 9, 2007 Hi - I am new to this board and very freaked out about what I believe may be a "persistent" or nagging cough. I have been coughing since August and scare myself silly reading about the obvious cancer concerns with a cough that doesn't go away. It is Non productive and does not keep me awake at night, but more of an annoying "tickle in your throat" that gives me the urge to cough. Finally seen at the Instacare last week where I was perscribed Allegra and Aciphex with a "shot in the dark" DX of possible allergies or Reflux. Lungs sound perfectly clear with no wheezing. Does a cough related to lung cancer ever get a little better, or does it continally get worse? Although I still cough daily, it doesn't seem as bad as it it used to be. Please advise exactly what they mean by persistent cough... P.S. - I am a 39 yr. old female with a prior "social" smoker history several years ago.
