Cough after stopping smoking: did you get one?

Raia · 19/08/2014 09:06

I stopped smoking 5 months ago (I now vape instead), and in the last 6-8 weeks I've developed a persistent cough. At first it was a dry cough, but now it's become more of a chesty cough. My chest feels tight and wheezy and I also feel a bit 'sinusy', eg I keep getting 'blocked ears' like you do on a plane. I've googled it but most people seem to be talking about coughing in the first few weeks of stopping smoking rather than several months later. Now I'm thinking I should see my GP as the cough/wheeziness is getting worse. Is it just my body adjusting after 30+ years of smoking? Did anyone else get these symptoms after stopping smoking?

My smokers cough lessened, but I found that I was very err mucousy iyswim, millions of snot etc Hmm and obviously the coughing up of the accumulated crap. It does sound like a bug, or maybe even a touch of asthma, I'd go to the gp Smile.

I occasionally still hoik up a bit of phlegm after 10 1/2 months. Yours doesn't sound like that though. It's quite possibly a bug. If you're worried go to the GP, it's been going on for a few weeks now. Hope you feel better soon Flowers
