Still coughing after COVID?
Especially early on after contracting the virus, coughing may serve to clear secretions from resolving lung inflammation. While such a cough may help lungs return to health, eventually, it can start to annoy or even severely affect quality of life. The diagnosis can be sensory neuropathic cough and can be caused by “damaged,” or “sensitized” sensory nerve endings in the trachea, larynx, or throat. These “wild” nerve endings go “ZING!!” and demand that you cough. For more, see https://laryngopedia.com/covid-19-coughing/
