View Full Version : Bad cough...

I have a really bad cough and when I wear my brace it's really hard to cough so then I just cough and cough and cough and cough until it starts to hurt. I didn't sleep in my brace last night 'cause of my cough and didn't wear it much today. Any advice? - Smoothie305

Hey! I've had the same thing before. Is it ever too hard to breathe, like your chest cannot expand any farther than you need to be able to breathe? I'm no doctor, but from my own personal experiences, you might be wearing your brace too tight. You should probably check with your scoliosis doctor on this, because I don't want to steer you in the wrong way. From what I've been through, I started to loosen my brace a little bit. Just a bit, and you probably will not have this problem. :]]
Good luck, and hope that helps!
