When this happens, you end up with more mucus and nagging cough. When it comes to bronchitis, you should know that there are 2 types:
This type of bronchitis is more severe than the other one. It keeps coming back. This is among the conditions known as COPD i.e. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
This type of bronchitis is more common than chronic bronchitis. The symptoms last for a couple of weeks, and this type does not lead to any further problems.
This is a cough which lasts 4 weeks with kids and with adults it can last 8 weeks or maybe longer. This type of a cough might make you feel exhausted and also can interrupt your sleep.
In serious cases, chronic cough can lead to rib fractures, lightheadedness, and vomiting.
In some cases, it is difficult to find out the problem which triggers this condition. However, common causes of a chronic cough are acid reflux, tobacco use, asthma and postnasal drip.
