Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
What tests have you made?
Im pretty sure you have been doing self medication and not done any tests. Or else you would have attached the reports.
Because it is not possible that all tests come normal.
Consult a pulmonologist in person for further evaluation and management. 
Symptomatic treatment or self treatment is not recommended.
Best regards.
