Can someone interpret my X-Ray results?

I've been coughing since January (I've been too busy to take/buy meds), and I've been having a dry cough since then, that's like 5 going on 6 months.

Chest PA:

Pulmonary vasculature is accentuated.

Heart is not enlarged.

Diaphragm and sinuses are intact.

IMPRESSION:

Hyperaerated lungs

Water's View:

Frontal, maxillary and ethmoidal sinuses are intact.

Nasal septum is in the midline.

IMPRESSION:

No sinus pathology detected.

Thank you.

    Don't know why they're commenting on your sinuses in a chest PA view xray...

    The interpretation of these results are that your lungs are fine and doesn't explain why you have cough. At best it rules out some of the things it could be (like TB, pneumonia etc).

    I'd suggest you stop being too busy to take your recommended meds.

    If you had been told all that, you have been also told what it manner. There isn't a layman alive who knows what such structures look like on an x-ray, so you may have already spoken with a doctor. So why are you asking right here?
