Hello! My name is Katelynn. I've been on DeviantArt for more than three years. I've been doing digital art for around more than three and a half years. I draw mostly for fun and improvement, but I also take commissions as a perk! I am obsessed with anything cute and adorable. Anything that is cute will make my day, it gives me a happy-go-lucky feeling. I enjoy making friends and I love the DeviantArt community. So don't be shy!

Help with a cough?

Mon Jul 21, 2014, 3:11 PM

So I just needs some opinions or advice if anyone has any
I've had a bad cough for a week and a half
For a few days, I didn't take any medicine or anything because it was bearable
Then my mom picked me up some Tussin DM which is Cough suppressant and expectorant
But, it literally did nothing for my cough. The bottle is almost gone within just two days and it's been no help
It actually made my cough become a dry cough
And guys, you'd probably think 'Oh it's just a cough no big deal'
That's what I thought too, until I haven't been able to sleep for more than an hour without waking up coughing my brains out
Literally, I have had no sleep all week. I've had glimpses of sleep, like an hour here and there. But no more than 3 hours a day
And I really need sleep. I'm trying to work on my commissions, and the only way I was doing it, was drinking coffee to keep myself alert
Because without it, I was exhausted, but not able to sleep. So I just thought 'Well whatever, I can't sleep so I might as well work'
I've tried drinking tea, with honey. I've tried ginger ale, I've tried warm milk with turmeric, also warm water with honey and cinnamon
I also bought cough drops today ( Halls honey and lemon ) and they've actually helped a lot, but I still can't sleep
I actually looked it up in hopes I'd find out why it's impossible to sleep with a cough, and I read :

“When we lie down, the gastroesophageal reflex kicks in because mucus automatically begins to pool.” The best way to counteract this gravitational pull is elevation. “Sleep with a pillow propping you up a little,” Dr. Blass suggests. “It will help keep the mucus from collecting in the back of the throat.”

I mean, I can try sleeping sitting up, but I really want to know if there's other remedies.
And my cough has been gradually getting a bit better, but does anyone know how long coughs typically last?
Any advice would help me (: Thanks for reading
