Doctor: HiThank you for the question,Bronchitis is a common infection causing inflammation and irritation to the main a irways of the lungs. Symptoms of bronchitis include coughing up yellow-grey mucus, sore throat, wheezing and having a blocked nose. Here are few symptoms:-Hacking cough.-Yellow, white, or green phlegm, usually appearing 24 to 48 hours after cough begins.-Fever, chills.-Soreness and tightness in the chest.-Some pain below the breastbone during deep breathing-Some shortness of breath.Conventional treatment for acute bronchitis may consist of simple measures such as getting plenty of rest, drinking lots of fluids, avoiding smoke and fumes, and possibly getting a prescription for an inhaled bronchodilator and or cough medicines. Migraine headaches are a bit of a mystery. Here are a few causes:-Central nervous system disorder.-Vascular problem.-genes- Chemical abnormalities.It is better to seek medical care if the symptoms become worse. I hope this will help you. Take care
