Why is it ? that you can sleep all night when you have a cold, but the moment you wake up, the sneezing & coughing starts up again ?
Sadly, I find just the opposite happens. If I have a chest cold, and lay down, that seems to be when the coughing is the worst...unless I take a cough suppressant. There has been many a night, where I have had to sleep (propped up with pillows).
U do cough as u sleep but mostly it's because as ur sleeping ur body is trying to fix that flu u have
I know right!?!? The same thing happens to smokers....they can't go 10 minutes without a cigarette, but can sleep for hours without getting up for a smoke. As for coughing....I'm at the tale end of a cold that actually woke me up several times every night coughing. I had to stay in bed all day just to get some sleep between coughing fits.
