History of present illness
I have a cough that is really bothering me.
Cough productive of sputum
Not usually. But in the past few days, yes, I have been coughing up some gunk.
Color of sputum
It is greenish.
Volume of sputum
I would say about 1 teaspoon per day.
Blood in sputum
3–4 months ago.
It comes and goes.
The first time I had it was at one of my gymnastics classes. Nothing special was really going on with me at the time though.
It had been the same until about 4 days ago, but then it suddenly got a lot worse.
On and off, until 4 days ago. Now I have it several times a day.
When exercising I will suddenly have a big cough attack and have to stop. It is so annoying.
Sometimes when I have the cough attacks, I also feel like I cannot catch my breath, which is scary.
Review of systems specific to recurrent cough
Hmm, I felt a bit hot in the evening the past 2 days.
Racing of the heart
For the past 4 days, my cough has been painful.
For the past month, this cough has woken me up several times during the night, so my sleep has not been as good as it normally is.
Well, I have a cold, if that is what you mean.
Symptoms of upper respiratory infection
I have had a runny nose for the past 5 days.
Exposure to tuberculosis
Exposure to fumes/dust
Exposure to animals/pets
Past medical history, family history, social history
Past medical history
I have eczema.
I think I am allergic to horses. My eczema has always gotten worse when I have gone riding.
I use a couple of different moisturizing creams for my eczema, and when it gets really bad I have to use a hydrocortisone cream.
Never, thank God!
Past surgical history
My mom also has eczema.
I am going to college to become a graphic designer.
I live in a dorm.
Sometimes I drink a beer at parties, but I do not drink regularly.
I smoke marijuana sometimes or try one of the pills I get offered at the parties I go to. But I do not take something everyday or anything like that.
I do not smoke cigarettes, only marijuana once in a while.
I have done gymnastics since I was little, and I am on the college gymnastics team, but now I have trouble getting through practice because of these awful cough attacks.
