Comment from: Whoop 685, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: July 03

I am a 50 year old woman in the 6th week of whooping cough. I have text book pertussis symptoms yet it took 5 doctor’s visits and finally a blood test in the 3rd week to diagnose, so if you suspect pertussis be persistent with your doctors. Between week 3 and 6 I had severe paroxysms, breathing difficulty with loud whoop and sometimes vomiting and terrible chest and back pains. I was non-responsive to medication in this period. At the start of week 7 my chest and back pains continue with minimal ease.
