Thank you and I should
Usually the coughing comes afterwards and the hard to breath part comes first

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

This weakness may be happening due to your coughing.  When you cough really hard for prolonged periods of time, your body can become low on oxygen, causing weakness in limbs and general body. 

You need to get your lungs checked to see what's going on.  Then you can figure out if your coughing is causing your other symptoms. 

Having poor lung function can exhaust the body - please see a doctor to begin a diagnosis and treatment regime.  Don't let your lungs get worse.
