I am torn between going to the walk in clinic or not. I woke up yesterday with a "soft cough" deep in my chest. This went on all day sometimes a hacking cough too. My chest began hurting from all the coughing about midday yesterday. I do not seem to be struggling for breath as a severe asthma attack would make you do. I did use my nebulizer one time last night at aout 7pm. The treatment did not seem to make a big difference if any difference. I woke up this morning and still have this cough. I always tend to have wheezing that I can feel in my lower left lung. I was able to feel it a bit more last night. I am unsure if I had a sudden onset of bronchitis however I have not had a cold or any symptoms of one although people around me are all suffering from a cold. I do take asthmanex and singulair daisly for my asthma. I also take entocort for my crohn's disease which is a corticosteroid with less side effects of pred.
Currently I am dizzy from my coughing and feel wheezing on and off. Does this sound like it may be bronchitis or just an asthma issue?
