Customer Question

Hi my name is ***** ***** and I have had a cough for 4mths which is on going, it starts with my throat feeling irratated either with a tickle or a feeling of some one sticking a shpe neddle in my throat this starts me coughing until I am almost sick.
I have seen four GPs now and no one seems to now what is wrong, the last two GPs said I could have been suffering with Whopping cough and have sent me for blood tests which I havent had the results yet, the other GP is refering me to a Lung Specialist please could you help as I am 65 years old and cant take much more as some days I feel quit unwell.
