Breathing and hearrate? RE post 1606

Hello doctor!
Thank you so much for the response!
We had took her for x-rays last week monday and it showed she had bronchi something!  -)
But nothing serious, apparently, just a little infection.
We were given Pulmicort to nebuslise her with!
We have been struggling with her for the past 3 months.
She also uses the muscles in her neck/throat and the muscles just beneath her ribs to breathe....
She has no allergies, did all the bloodtests.
She has a constant runny nose.
She coughs often and if she coughs it sounds like she is going to start trowing up....
We are very worried about our little girl but all the doctors we have been to tells us that there is nothing wrong.....

Thanks for all your advice!
It really helps to hear your opinion!
Hope you have a good day!

Now that you have given me your little girl's symptoms I am able to inform you that she has whooping cough. Go back to your paediatrician and inform him/her of the diagnosis and request the correct treatment.
