please make sure you're taking probiotics....double!
I can relate to what you have....I've had that 4 times in the past 8 months. Why it hits me there all the time is a puzzle,
You could take the Mucinex capsules to make sure the excretions stay fluid, spit it all out when you cough up, drink lots of fluids and don't talk...or whisper.
Feel well soon,
