Hello sir, sorry about your cough.for how long have you had this? you said it occurs at night, are you asthmatic? when you cough do you bring forth sputum/what colour is it? Do you smoke? people who have asthma or allergy to components of their bedding could have cough and shortness of breath at night, for asthmatics it is due to the drop in ambient temperature at night. do you have any pain in your chest when you breath? any fever? let a doctor examine you in the hospital.
