I hear ya! I am getting some chest thing myself thanks to my son. I always feel like I never get a break. Hang in there and hopefully this won't make you start flaring again.

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,
