I've been in a flare for almost 2 weeks now.  Some days flaring more than others, per usual.  Went on a day long excursion with DH to see a Mill Museum, lots of walking even some stairs.  I thought I'd be okay pacing it, taking it at my own speed and did okay until on the way home.  Aching and super stiff. 
 
Went to bed, Tylenol and slathered up with Blue Emu, slept only couple of hours until pain started in again.  Back to slather on Topricin.  One more hour of half-sleep before pain and the cough started.  I get this deep down in my lungs cough sometimes as a flare progresses.  Well, so much for sleeping!!
 
Out to my recliner chair, heating pad on my back and the heated throw on the rest of me. Ahh-- that heated throw is my buddy, my pal when I'm flaring.  Well, I was up for over an hour before returning to bed.  No more coughing and was able to sleep some.  So, this morning, the flare has lessened some, I'm still aching and stiff and fibro fog in abundance.  No cough.
 
So, my question is does anyone else get this strange cough?  It is always at the end of a major flare, doesn't last for long  and then goes away.

I do cough sometimes but figured it was from smoking and sinus drainage, that is what my doc has been telling me. I do get regular chest x-rays.
 
We will see what the rest of the gang says about it.
 
My son swears by Blue Emu for arthritis from having his ankle crushed but I can't say any rub helps me not even rx Voltaren Gel that both my docs said was soooo good.

No...I do cough but it's drainage. I'm sure of that.

i always cough... it sounds more like smokers cough or barking.. had it since i was a child and had whooping cough..

i got told by my boss today a customer complained about me coughing and said i should not be there since i am spreading my illness.. she told her that i am the healthiest employee she had and its allergies the lady got mad and left.

waiting to see if the board of health is called or not since everyone in my town is paranoid of a little cough

I have never had a cough from the fibro (yet). But do have some weird breathing sometimes. It is like I quit breathing and then suck in a breath really fast. It feels strange. I have done that ever since I have had fibro symptoms.

Thanks  to everyone who answered.  Sounds like no one has the type of cough I do.  My, my, how unique I am!  Not!  I think its just that all fibro people have numerous and varied symptoms, some just unique to themselves.  I read the post someone put up on the NY Times article and in it or one of the other things you could click on, they said the the average fibro person has 22 different symptoms.  Alright--aren't we lucky.

I also read that it only takes 12 seconds for us to lose our concentration. So here we are running around with all these symptoms not knowing what we are doing. lol
