I have been out of commission for 5 days with a combination

Resolved Question:

I have been out of commission for 5 days with a combination of bad headaches and brutal post nasal drip that is non stop. In addition I take 10 steps and I am very weak and short of breath. I had an 'attack' if sorts a few nights ago in the center of my chest that felt like a hot knot the size of a lime was under my sternum. I also feel like I need to get a ton of junk out of my lungs - but I am not coughing nor do I have a runny nose - just this insane post nasal drip. I wouldn't have any idea what to do to get some relief - nor who to see if I was to call a Dr. Any ideas what the root of the evil might be and what I could do to feel better?

Hi Dr. Saha,


 


My temperature might be up slightly but not a lot.


No issues with blood pressure or pulse.


Breathing is more a difficulty mechaniclly than a shortness.

I'm here but having trouble replying

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Having trouble replying but still trying - it keeps booting me back to the main page

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.

With those symptoms & normal pressure, pulse, it is more related to lungs or respiratory tract.

You need an examination by doctor.

You should not wait further.

Home remedy will not help at this point.

You can take tylenol for pain.
