    There are times where I'm relaxed and don't feel the urge to cough too often. Other times, though, I feel the urge to cough every 2-3 seconds. This may happen for up to 1-2 hours in a lesson at school and then, when I move to the next, the cough might have eased slightly. My cough was most extreme a couple of days ago where I was coughing so frequently that it resulted in gagging; my eyes watered.

    On weekends, my cough isn't too bad but towards the evening, I may experience a long stint of it, similarly, this happens on weekdays too. I have no idea why this is: could it be persistent cough, anxiety cough or who knows what? I was told by a member of staff to go to the doctors.

    This issue has been going on for months but it's an intermittent thing. For example, during February half-term I barely coughed, whereas at school, in a lesson and at home on many evenings, I have and continued doing so for months on end.

    I have GCSEs this summer and so I am worried about the fact that I may cough constantly, interrupting other students.

    Go to the doctor instead of asking random unqualified people on the internet who can't help you.
