Let me put it another way. Have your doctors ever talked about autoimmune disease as being the cause of your heart problems ?
Ok.. I need some advice from any of you Doctor friends..? My cough is really bad which is normal for my condition.. My doctor has said taking my meds is the best way to keep fluid away out of my lungs.. we are trying very short walks and tons of rest.. But regaurdless of the diuretics ace inhibitors beta blockers etc.. My lungs seem to be saturated with fluid. I am sleeping rather sitting up in a chair to breath better at night. I know this is normal for my condition.. my question is .. are their other methods to help relieve this cough and ease it so I can sleep? The doctors have only sat me up to rest, I am not to lie flat.. But at this point even sitting up I still feel like I am drowning, coughing up and gurgling out frothy clearish white fluid all night long and during most of the day! Is there another position or option to help this.. It is scaring me and also my children..Not to mention the Dog.. who feels a need to be right up in my face every time I cough whining and licking me upside of my head!!!Any suggestions would be greatly tried and appreciated...Thank you...OH yeah am Having horrific heartburn but cannot take an antacid with my pills.. any suggestions there?
