My lungs have been burning for a couple of months

Patient

Q: My lungs have been burning for a couple of months and I sometimes feel like I'm short of breath for no reason. In addition, I also sometimes have such a strong urge to cough that I feel like I'm choking if I don't cough. A doctor prescribed advair and said it was caused by remnants of a cold. I went through with the advair and it helped a lot. Gradually after I stopped the advair the burning came back. I did another round of the advair and the same thing happened, felt better while I was taking it and then it got worse when the dosage was done.
