Got a nagging cough that’s gone on a while? Don’t want to have it checked out? Chances are, your spouse or co-workers want you do. I’m just sayin’ …
Well, actually, our publisher Dr. Hubbard is. He’s been in your shoes. He found out his chronic cough was caused by sleep apnea, of all things. Sleep apnea (stopping breathing when you’re sleeping) can lead to heart problems and an early death. What a good thing that cough turned out to be.
In “What Causes a Chronic Cough? 8 Reasons—and Treatments,” Dr. Hubbard lists some common things that can lead to coughing. They range from the everyday (allergies) to the serious (cancer, asthma) to the unexpected (heartburn, medications).
So get to the doctor already! You may be thanking your cough afterwards.
