I've had a lingering cough for almost 3 weeks; since before I went to California. It's worse in the morning, though over the last three nights, it's also manifesting wheezing, which keeps me awake. Grrrr.

I'm taking ProBerry caps, I'm taking Vit C, I'm taking homeopathic, I'm eating beneficials and diamonds, and avoiding avoids. I'm trying to get enough sleep, and not tax my system. I'm just not sure what else I can do.

I got my Vit D levels tested, and my number was low (31), and I'm on a script for mega-doses of Vit D, weekly for 8 weeks. I even got my script for albuterol renewed, but I don't want use it unless I really cannot breathe...

Do you have or have you ever been diagnosed with asthma?

I agree with Lola....you might have been breathing in toxic paint fumes.

Maybe another consultation with your homoeopath, does he/she offer over the phone consultations? it must be the wrong potency, frequency or remedy (maybe the symptoms changed or you need a dose of your constitutional remedy to clear it up)

Some things you can try:

Floss every day, of course (reduces bacteria)
Stinging nettle (for allergies)
Elderberry (for immune system)

This is very interesting to me!  For about a month, I have had mysterious asthma-type symptoms that are worse in the morning, sometimes a productive cough and sometimes not.  There is sometimes a little wheezing at the end of a deep exhale.  I have never had asthma, so this is strange.  But I was fighting a virus a couple of months ago and before that, I had a chronic sinus infection which I finally conquered.

Look at the discussion that is going about Thieves Oil. I started it to encourage others suffering from symptoms, such as yours, that are a result of respiratory viruses or flu. The thieves oil won't directly address the reasons behind your breathing difficulties, but it will most likely improve your symptoms immediately upon using the oil.

I will be more than happy to talk to you more, Drea, about where to buy it and how to use it for immediate relief. I highly recommend you get it ASAP. At least read the thieves oil discussion in the "recent forum posts".

To quote my general physician, " Do not mess around with asthma!"
Even though mine is adult onset..only had it 1 1/2 years..and is only one of the 3 symptoms of my Samter's Triad/ AERD...(nasal polyps, asthma, aspirin allergy).....it is the most serious! I don't take my albuterol inhaler until I am dying, and even then I only take one puff..not the suggested 2... but my doctor scared me a little when he described the damage due to asthma.

I generally wheeze a little(on exhale) late at night or early in the morning, and immediately after aerobic exercise. Thats when I cough and have to use the albuterol.

I do have asthma, which has been in remission since 2004. I don't believe the paint had anything to do with the cough, as the paint is low VOC, low smell, and I made sure there was enough ventilation.

Thank you, Colleen! I have been following that thread but didn't put two and two together! I'll get some asap!

Chloe, thank you.  This article is very intriguing!

"Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a virus that causes respiratory infections in adults and children. . . There seems to be a correlation between severity of infection, history of allergies in the child or parent, and the chance of having airway sensitivity that mimics asthma.

In adults, RSV can cause wheezing and induce asthma symptoms in those who already have asthma. It can also cause asthma-like symptoms in people with no history of asthma. In a study of daycare workers without asthma who contracted RSV, researchers found that the workers had increased problems with their airways 8 weeks after the initial RSV infection. Their airway functioning returned to normal 4 months post-infection.

Because these types of viral infections are more common during certain times of the year, viral-induced asthma cases tend to wax and wane with the seasons. Rhinovirus has a peak season in late fall, and Influenza A peaks in late winter. RSV is most common in the winter months, with a peak season of January to February in the northern hemisphere."

Thanks for the link, Chloe! I believe that I caught some bug that my immune system wasn't robust enough to reject, due to my low D levels.

I'm just wondering how to kick my system up a notch, and I think Thieve's Oil may be the ticket!

I have some of that oil also, Drea, and will start using it again.  I'm thinking Genoma Security too.

Drea, if you have a good natural food store nearby, you might try a product that I've started taking and it seems to help.  It's called Er Chen Wan and carries the Plum Flower Label - a safe and good quality Chinese herb company.  I'll try and post some info on the formula tomorrow, or you can Google search.

I bought a bottle of thieves oil and decided to see if I noticed anything if I mixed a drop with a carrier
oil and rubbed it on the bottoms of my feet after showering.  All I had was olive oil so I decided to try
it.  Can't tell anything because it's only been 2 days, but just experimenting. It did feel nice and warming
on my feet.

I often start craving specific SWAMI foods and today I was craving pinto beans....so I googled it to see what
nutrient(s) it contained.

It's super high in molybdenum

and although this might help me in some beneficial way, it's helpful for people with asthma symptoms.

I've been eating a lot of pinto beans lately, and the cough seems to be getting better, albeit, very slowly...I ordered thieve's oil but it's being shipped...I'm also doing a different homeopathic remedy.

Thanks for all the support!

Ha! A good friend was telling me today that her doctor told her to lightly rub Thieve's Oil over her sinuses to relieve pain and congestion! Imagine that!

I'm sure there are others outside of these forums that have used thieves oil or something similar. People tend to hear about and remember what works well.

Drea, I'lll say a prayer for you in hopes you will recover soon and quickly. It's a drag feeling run down for extended periods of time, I know.

I would recommend Echinacea.. That boosts immune function.  It's probably a virus that's flaring up your asthma. You should use an inhaler if you're wheezing.  

Same thing with my son... he finally broke down and got an inhaler for when he gets a chest cold. I'd like to add that the brilliant kid decided to start smoking. He smokes   My other son started smoking too  "only occassionally" sure.  I retract my previous statement of them being braniacs.

Mayflowers,
I sympathize with how you must be feeling about your sons smoking.
Remember, it is their life.....as much as it frustrates us....just keep setting a good example of a healthy life yourself.
My oldest has a high IQ... but... doesn't eat many veggies because he doesn't like the taste!?? Believe me, with all the great cooks in my family he has had plenty of chances to eat a variety of foods prepared many ways. He ate everything until about first grade...downhill from there.
My youngest is the music/fitness nut who eats pretty much as the 0- hunter he is but often makes fun of "me and the BTD"...until he wants some Deflect for O that I bought for my DH....uh huh...
Drea,
Hoping you continue to improve. Love pintos...eat them weekly.
Spring,
Good to know about thieves oil and sinus!
