After nearly a week of prolonged hacking, coughing and feeling like I couldnt get any air into my lungs; I decided to visit the Draper IHC Instacare.
I thought I was the only one with this crackling cough until I sat in the waiting room for few minutes and heard the roars of coughs. My diagnosis? Not pneumonia, bronchitis or RSV. The doctors opinion was that it was likely environmentally induced. Wait for it… the inversion!
Interestingly (and timely), I saw an article in the Salt Lake Tribune yesterday discussing the risks the inversion brings with air quality and exercise. Give it a read by clicking here.
At just over 6,000 feet, this time of year is a nice reminder of the lifestyle we enjoy living on the hill.
