In this video, Dr. Robert W. Bastian explains three explanations for coughing in the context of Covid-19 infection, with emphasis on the potential for sensory neuropathic cough (Phase 3). The possible phases are:
1) During the “hurricaine” of the infection itself, when your lungs may be fighting active and as-yet undefeated virus.
2) During the “cleanup phase,” when the virus has been vanquished, but the lung debris (think: “downed branches and detached roof shingles”) is being cleaned up, even though “the sun is shining.”
3) For weeks to months after phases 1 and 2 are long past, coughing caused by damaged nerve endings that go “ZING!” with a tickling, burning, dry, or dripping sensation that initiates coughing, throat clearing, or laryngospasm.
This often-overlooked sensory neuropathic type of cough is explained in detail, including how to treat it.
