    strange cough

    For the past 6 months or so I have developed this dry itch feeling inthe base of my throat, it feels like something is down at the base of my throat and it's hard to swollow sometimes, it also feels like my air (windpipe) is being blocked off and I'm having to force myself to cough so I can get air. This happens anytime during the day or night. I know it's not allergies or post sinus drip (I can feel that and it's not the same) What could this possilbly be or causing it?

    Hi Robin - This is a breast cancer site, so unfortunately we can't advise you on general health problems. I can tell you this isn't a typical breast cancer symptom; and I'd suggest you see a doctor, since it doesn't sound like it's going away... Action trumps worry anytime, so call and make an appointment soon. Take care - PJH

      PJ,

      Thanks for responding, I guess that's what I get for posting this question at O' stupid thirty in the am! HA HA... no I guess it can't get answered. I honestly just read the Health Center and not the bar underneath! Gee now that you've experienced a great air headed moment from ME! Laughing I thank-you for responding and all can ignore!
