Most people equate coughing with lung and respiratory problems. This is not always the case. Many times coughing indicates a much more serious problem of the heart. Read further below to see if your coughing may be a sign of heart disease. If you feel like you are coughing constantly and it is a much deeper problem than just of the lungs, see your doctor immediately.


Whooping Cough

A whooping cough is a strong, forceful cough. The "whoop" sound is produced after the patient inhales after coughing. The coughing spits up often saliva particles. A whooping cough is a result of a strong bacterial infection. The force produced by the cough is so strong that patients have reported broken ribs, hernias, and violent vomiting after coughing. A vaccine prevents whooping cough.


Productive Chest Cough

A productive chest cough is when a patient coughs roughly, and phlegm is spit up. In most cases when all the phlegm is expelled from the lungs, the coughing stops. If the coughing persists for up to two weeks, contact your doctor. There may be a problem in your lungs or heart.


Dry Cough

A dry cough is the complete opposite of a productive chest cough. It does not produce saliva or phlegm. A dry cough produces a sharp pain in the throat and bronchi. This type of cough is common at the end of a cold. It tries to get out any residual bacteria and saliva. Dry coughs do not indicate any heart problems or serious diseases. They are often easily repressed with cough syrups.


Barking Cough

Like a whooping cough, a barking cough is very rough and painful. It is hoarse and causes convulsions. A foreign object stuck inside the respiratory tract or in the lungs causes a barking cough. The respiratory tract tends to swell, making it difficult to breathe and eat. If you have a barking cough, it is important to see a doctor immediately for relief.


Chronic Coughing

Whichever type of cough you have, it is important to record how long it goes on for. No matter what kind of cough you have, if it goes on for more than ten days, see a doctor. In that case it may not be simply a respiratory problem, but rather a heart problem. However, not all persistent coughing problems are heart problems. Read further below to see if you have any of the other heart failure symptoms.


Other Symptoms

Coughing could be a sign of heart problems. But there are also other symptoms that could show if it is probable that you have heart problems. If you feel tired, have a fast heart rate, shortness of breath, and nausea, you might have a heart problem. If you have even one of the symptoms above, see your doctor immediately.


Don't get too scared if you have a symptom or two. Many problems can be solved by exercise, healthy diet, and mild medication. Every person's body is different, so can never diagnose yourself. Sometimes coughing is a symptom of heart defects, but not always. If you feel like you're coughing is persistent, contact your doctor and schedule an appointment.
