Hello,

Welcome to just answer,

Common cause of such symptoms is infection.

You need to get yourself examined by your doctor for find out exact cause.

You also need to do chest x-ray to look for any disease of lungs.

If there is discomfort when you inhale from nose there is possibility of infection in nose or sinus.

Do not delay and get immediate medical attention.

Thanks

Last time when i have been to Internal Medicne Doctor he has done chest X ray,and other stuff and said lungs are good..do i need to see any specialist in this regard please.Do i need to ask for any special Diagnosis ?
Health Professional: DR MED MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 years ago
First you can see an internal medical specialist and if required he can refer you to a respiratory medicine specialist.

The internal medical speicalist i have seen actually gave up saying he dont understand what the problem is. I did US ABD COMPLETE,and Chest X ray in March but nothing cameup.
Health Professional: DR MED MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 years ago
In that case you need to see a respiratory medicine specialist and an ENT ear nose throat specialist.

Thanks

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
