Are you having chest tightness too? Do you have a urgent care clinic you could go to? What doctors do you see and what meds are you taking?
I take Singulair, Asmanex, X
openex as needed, X
openex nebulizer as needed, astelin, clarinex, a saline nasal spray, Zantac (and a tylenol 3 every 5 hours for horrible back pain) and just came off prednisone.(honestly sometimes it's so hard to remember and I have it on the computer a list of what to take and when kinda makes it easier lol).
I also like drinking teas, just a suggestion have you tried drinking a warm beverage?
I would suggest that you possibly consider going to an urgent care clinic if you can get checked out and have your mind at ease.
I go to the doctor when I can't stop coughing because I get pnemonia so easy. I've had pneumonia 3 times before I turned 18 years old, Last time there were 3 black spots on my lungs. and I've never smoked!!!
Hope you'll feel better soon, you have my prayers and empathy!!!
As alway keep us posted and God Bless and good luck
