Hello there. I can understand your concern. since you have been experiencing so much of a problem, then why have you not consulted a doctor yet? for this issue you need to consult a pulmonologist in person for further evaluation and management. get a X-ray of the chest and a pulmonary function test also done. do not delay your visit to the doctor anymore. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.
