Has anyone had it before? im not sure if i have it, i've recently been coughing and haven't been able to breath after i actually cough.

A minute ago i found it so hard to breath that i had to bang the radiator for my dad, i thought i was gonna collapse. i'm quite worried.

Anyone who knows anything about it please help

Whooping cough, that'll be accompanied by mucus at least at the late stage, you'd be coughing up bucketfulls. No exaggeration. Early on feels and sounds like a bad cough, even a smokers cough with expectoration (coughing up mucus). Then the cough is like 10 or more coughs which sounds like a whoop, often it jarrs you so much you puke.

The doc would put anyone who suspected as having it on for starters, antibiotics.

If you are not experiencing the mucus bit, its probably a respiratory infection or damage, which could have occured from something like paint fumes etc.

Check it out at the docs asap.

Don't worry, just go to the hospital and tell the Triage nurse who grades you as urgent, moderate or not urgent, that you have not been able to breathe and you blacked out, they'll see you fast.

Better safe than sorry.

If it was a normal flu like cough and your immune system or respiratory function was not up to scratch you may have damaged or irritated the lungs by something else.

But go check it out.

I had hooping cough when I was about 10. Constant coughing - as you tried to regain your breath you'd just start coughing again... - finallly resulting in either coughing up flem or vomitting.

Missed a whole term off school.

I used to just have a ice cream tub - that I'd basically fill up with vomit every day... it became part of life... You'd cough, cough, cough, cough, cough for about 15 mins and then throw up.

remember having mates round - and I started coughing and said 'don't follow me' - went round the corner to throw up and they followed and were totally grose'd out

Tried going back to school - but similar thing happened... first day I went back I was told to go to the sick room by the teacher because I was throwing up ... spent whole day there and felt it was pointless coming in.

Had my lungs scanned and my lung tissue had actually been damaged. I found it very hard to breathe - and was declared as now having asthma because of my poor state of lungs.

I had a thing you could blow into to messure your force of air / quantity - and it was pitafully low.

Thankfully, just got better - never actually used an asthma thingy and about a year later I found that thing that measured your breath and I was back to normal sort of level.

Have no problems breathing now - but wasn't sick for about 7/8 years after I had hooping cough. It was getting very very very wasted that finally gave me the ability to do that again

- Sorry for essay...

I hope for your sake its not what you've got mate - but I suppose coz I was 10 (or younger ... can't really remember) - it would of had a worse effect - than it would now.
