From above....

So once again I must emphasize just how important it is to see your doctor for newly acquired and lingering symptoms after you quit smoking. Yes, your body is amazing and begins healing almost after the last puff, but never assume that a lingering bad cough or sores in mouth or shortness of breath are from healing or weight gain is from eating too much after quitting, or that tiredness, irritability, insomnia are quitting related. Each one of these symptoms, completely normal in the beginning, can be a sign that there is something else going on somewhere if they persist weeks or months into your quit. Yes, seeing a doctor can be frightening, but not knowing what is going on can be even more frightening. Knowing what you are dealing with is half the battle and it makes fighting it so much easier.

EXACTLY what I needed to read today. Shortness of breath getting worse..the instructor at the gym who gave me my orientation today explained that my lungs are HEALING...and things may get worse before they get better. Also been having some head congestion..fall allergy season in the Windy City..and have seen the Doc who prescribed a nasal spray. Voila! Suzi 2M 11D

From above:
Continue to guard your quit with every fiber you have. Don't let any person, any event, or any newly acquired or uncovered illness ever rob you of it. Your quit is your life and you should protect it no matter what happens It's really simple... all you have to do to continue healing is to never take another puff.
