So I always get cough in lead up to exams, when revising and I don't think it is coincidence? Anyone know why this happens? I generally revise for a lot longer than normal (5-8 hours per day), could that contribute to it? Any tips?

My room is dusty even with windows open (London- you guessed it), but I only get a cough before/during exams and I wonder if it is due to stress + more work (I get enough sleep: at the very least 6/7 hours)

Maybe it’s a psychological thing.

I usually get a lot more headaches in the lead up to exams, so maybe it is psychological?

I think I have mild hay fever as well as I had all the symptoms. I think it is just stress + anxiety combined that gives me a cough. It is a dry (maybe chesty?) cough as well

I do hope you feel better soon
Funnily enough it could also be a dust allergy alongside with the hayfever symptoms. I'd suggest giving your room a nice clean and opening the windows a bit for a nice breeze to come through.

Cetrizine also tends to help, but it can make you feel quite drowsy.
Hope this helps

That makes a lot of sense since I feel like there is a lot of dust in my room, even with windows open. I need to get curtains installed since that helps. I don't think I will take the drug cos I don't want to be drowsy! I am trying herbal tea instead
