    I've had a cough for two months, and it' getting worse.

    At first, I had my asthma meds increased, which helps with asthma attacks, but this cough won't go. At first it was minor, but now it's getting quite bad.

    Recently, I'm finding it hard to breathe, and I feel lethargic all the time. The cough has gone really deep and chesty, it hurts my back and I coughed up blood the other day. But I had a nosebleed so I think it was because of that, it hasn't happened since so it's a one off I'm hoping. I can't sleep because I'm coughing several times per minute, and I just generally feel awful.

    Doctors, or just bad flu? Cheers.

    Yes, it's reasonable for you to go back. It could just be your asthma getting worse in the cold weather, but it's fine to get checked out.

    definitely the doctors or the walk in centre. if it was just the flu it wouldn't explain the problem with your breathing. plus you say it hurts your back when you cough. that sounds like a bad cough. it wont hurt to get checked over and it will help you to stop worrying. good luck with whatever it is

      This is most definately not walk in centre material.
