    My trip to Tokyo last week was great other than this shitty dry cough someone gave me. No other symptoms other than the uncontrollable coughing with little production.
    Mind you I heard practically everyone had it.

    So what is it and how long before it clears up?
    I've had it for almost a week.
    Thanks Japan

    Clearly a Chinese tourist. The sons and daughters of Yamato are incapable of spreading such things.

    I was in China a few weeks before. No one I saw was sick there and I returned healthy as ever. I saw way too many Japanese with this same cough...

    There are people who get sick and blame other people, and there are people who get sick and chalk it up to bad luck or to maybe they could have been a bit more careful about their health, fitness and personal hygiene.

    Just trying to make an entertaining post.

    My main goal was to find those that had it or knows what it is and how long the average recovery was.

    I was watching the news a couple of weeks ago and it was blaming the foreigner influx for rugby World Cup with the current rise in influenza. Dirty gaijins at it again.

    Just because you have a cough doesn't mean you got sick from someone. I am asthmatic. I also have allergies. Like clockwork every year, I get 2 weeks of blocked sinuses from my allergies. Which turns into a bronchiole cough from all the sniffling I do. It typically lasts anywhere from 2 weeks to a month. It is dry and annoying. Go to the doctor, if it's just bronchiole cough then no one got you sick and you can stop blaming people...

    Uncontrollable cough could be Tuberculosis. It transmits through coughed air. I suggest you start wearing masks and have your chest x-rayed.

    Air is dry as buggery at the moment.
    Sleep with a humidifier set to 60%.

    Got checked out the other day since it was over a week and a half with no improvement. The unproductive cough got really bad that I was close to injuring myself. Doc said I just have a viral cough. Lungs clear. Can't give me anything to fix it other than letting it run it"s course. Said it could take 2-4 weeks....:hungover::wtf:

    After a few days since that clinic visit and no improvement, went to my primary doc (usually impossible to get last minute appt with)

    Turns out I got fukin Whooping Cough!

    Should be cured by Sunday. My best guess it was the old A-hole on the plane next to me to Tokyo who gave it to me. Timing matches up.

    People are the worst, and economy airplane travel is equally the worst. People should wear full face helmets with the visor shut if they are sick (airplanes or otherwise).

    I used to wear a mask on flights like this but I just can't stand breathing on myself. Paid the price however...
