I've had a lot of post nasal drip the last three weeks, stuffed up nose, coughing up dark yellow stuff.

Went to Urgent Care sunday, was told I have Acute Sinusitis.
I've still got the post nasal drip,
and after walking out in the cold to my parents last night I was short of breath, not terribly but enough I noticed and then again when I got home.
And now today while just sitting down.

Before anyone mentions that SOB can be due to heart problems
I've had 20+ ekgs ( health anxiety ) in the last 10 months, echocardiogram April 2015, 24 Hour Holter Monitor April 2015, Event Monitor October-November 2015. Last EKG was 12/18 in Cardiologist office.

I've never been this sick with these symptoms this long.
The SOB is new.
I DO see my Primary for a follow up for routine blood work tomorrow, so I do plan on mentioning it.

I wonder if maybe the cold isn't making my asthma act up a bit?
My asthma was gone up until a few months ago when I got sick, haven't had a problem with it since I was a child.

Has anyone else ever had this happen?


Thank you for reading this entire thing!
