Hello there...I can understand your concern. First and foremost you need to completely stop smoking. This could be adding to your existing problem. Secondly you could be suffering from lower respiratory tract infection. You will need detailed clinical examination and further investigations. So kindly consult a pulmonologist with all your previous prescriptions for further evaluation.
