I had type b flu in Feb. I have since had a cough, had 2 xrays in minior emergency, taken a round doxcyclene and now I'm coughing so aggressively that I'm coughing up clear liquid. It's a wracking, choking cough. Who should I see?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?

No other symptoms, just the cough

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had strep 12 years ago that caused a heart attack at age 28 38

I am sorry you are coughing. you could have bronchiectasis inflammation of your airways filled with mucus

mucinex or robitussin could help

you should see your primary care doctor

you may benefit from a course of steroids like prednisone.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
