Im having trouble breathing and i have a chest cough,

Patient : Im having trouble breathing and i have a chest cough, i have lower back pain and also i have aches in my legs
Doctor :   Hello Welcome to Ask The Doctor. I have read your query and understand your concern. You seem to be suffering from Acute Bronchitis but we should rule out Lower respiratory tract infection in such case. I would advise in such scenario: 1. Hemogram with ESR 2. Chest- Xray If the Chest Xray and these blood investigations show no sign of infection then, you would be treated for Bronchitis. Treatment constitutes anti-allergic drugs like Levocetirizine and Montelukast and in severe cases inhalers containing like Salbutamol and Steroid inhaler like Budesonide. Share my opinion with your doctor before acting upon it. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy.
