I have a character who's a smoker, and only a few people know, and his wife and two step-kids don't--is that possible, or would they definitely smell it on him?...
What would cause me to feel like I am drowning from fluid in my chest?
It started about 2 or 3 weeks ago when I got a cold. It started as a runny nose & then a sore throat with coughing. Now I feel fine, but I still cough deep & I feel like I have a lot of fluid in my lungs. Whenever I lay down I end up waking up in a panic because I feel like I am drowning in my own fluid. What would cause this & how can I treat it? I am a 34 year old female, if that makes a difference.
