I have a deep cough and a pounding headache. What could be wrong?


Answer by  ptsurvey (91)

There are many reasons for coughing and headaches. You could simply have the common cold with a cough, and a headache caused by sinus congestion. Headaches could also result from being dehydrated, as often happens when people have a cold. Rarely, there are people who get coughing headaches, caused by the increased strain of coughing.

The deep cough with a pounding headache could be caused by bronchitis. This causes the lungs to contract and then that is when you cough. Sometimes bronchitis could be from smoking, or even second hand smoking, or just being sick. The way that you can get over it is you will have to consult a doctor and get something.

There are a plethora of things that could be wrong, including a cold, step throat, flu, even cancer. The important thing to do is to go to the doctor if your symptoms persist.

Just don't panic. It's most likely an indication your own body is giving you to let you know that you're tired. Get some rest, take a nap. If it persists, visit a doctor. But don't make something big out of a simple headache. Keep calm, and everything is going to be alright.
