Do you have a picture?

No pic I'm afraid.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm a bit concerned that its maybe to do with blood pressure, although I keep it monitored. Wonder also why I get coughing fits, dry cough mostly, but becomes white bubbly phlegm after a few coughs. I am on an inhaler for preventing asthma, but doesn't seem to stop the cough at all.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No meds, just supplements, magnesium, zinc for winter immunity, salmon oil for heart and vein health, and for all over pain from fibromyalgia when it gets too bad, or in order to help me exercise without too much pain, ibuprofen slow release...maybe once a week

Do you have sinus now?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not at moment, only in spring, this happens often now every couple of weeks.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

This is very complex

what do you think it is?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No idea, just concerned about blood pressure or not catching something before it escalates. Will go to doc next week as this has taken too long and no resolution. Thanks.
