Doctor :   Hello Welcome to Ask The Doctor. You seem to be suffering Bronchitis. I would advise in such scenario: 1. Hemogram with ESR 2. ECG 3. Chest Xray If the Chest Xray and these blood investigations show no sign of infection then, you would be treated for Bronchial Asthma / Bronchitis. In such scenario, your doctor would prescribe you inhalers containing bronchi dilators like Salbutamol. You might also require short dose of Steroid inhaler like Budesonide. Share my opinion with your Doctor before acting upon it. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy
