Black spots in phlegm

I am being treated for sinusitis and I noticed that I have a few black spots in the phlegm particularly in the morning. I have slight wheezing and some difficulty in breathing when I climb stairs. No fever. I must say that the sinusitis is in control after taking flixonase spray and montelukast tablets. Do I need to seek an opinion from a specialist for this?

Redness/burning sensation

3-4yrs ago i had fallen flat on my chest one marble floor while swinging in the rod. At that time i didn't have any issue. But recently i have started having redness on the left side of my chest. When i try to stretch left ribs, i feel little pain inside as if some muscle is stuck and i m trying to pull it(if tried more cracking type of sound from ribs can be heard). However if i sit straight and keep my posture right, i m in much relief. But if i try too much to stretch my muscle redness occurs and can be seen with eyes near mammary area+little below. However during sleep i do not feel any pain as the muscle are in relaxed posture. After having a meal,some kind of burning sensation can be felt. I have done xrays and MRI but all the report says everything is normal. Am i suffering from anykind of allergy or what exactly is it. Please help me with some medicines.

I've had a chest cold for two weeks.

I also have COPD. Nothing I've tried is working. For several days I cough so hard I get lightheaded and disoriented. The other day temporarily passed out. And started shaking. I was not totally unconscious. But I couldn't move. It only lasted about 5 seconds.
