We have a situation here. Christmas day my husband was coughing ---- he was standing at the time. He seemed to have coughed so hard that he actually passed out. He hit the floor hard, bending his glasses and scrubbing his nose and forehead.
This happened one other time about three weeks ago or so. My brother-in-law was driving us home from my husband's chemotherapy. During the drive on the interstate, my husband coughed so hard that his face turned red, he clinched his fists and appeared to have stopped breating. We pulled over, I jumped out and opened my husband's door. By the time I opened the door, my husband was back with us and was wondering why we pulled off the highway.
I called the physician after the first incident and was advised that the first incident was nothing to be concerned about due to it lasting less than 20 seconds.
Now that this has happened a second time I think there is something wrong. I can't imagine him driving or even be left alone until we get to the bottom of this.
Thank you for your thoughts.
