Causes for breathlessness might include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchitis, asthma...reduce irritating stimuli (eg, cold, dry air; indoor or outdoor air pollutants) that may provoke coughing. An upright or semiupright posture, such as sleeping with the head and shoulders raised, may decrease cough related to pharyngeal secretions..Consult nearest pulmonologist they will help you further
