Chronic cough, cold, yellow green mucous, metallic taste and smell, burning sensation between eyes, ear popping. Solution?

Hi, I have been coughing since end of August. GP told in Sep that I had viral flu . By end of Sep GP diagnosed chest infection and antibiotic and brown inhaler was prescribed. Course lasted 5 days. 3 weeks later Back to GP, Haed cold and amoxicillin . Two weeks after completing the course, I still coughing, blowing my nose quite strongly with yellow/green mucos. Lost taste and smell, burning sensation between my eyes, ear popping with weird noice, similar to a fizzy drink bottle coming out my nose and ears and about 3 days with metallic smell or taste as well as light blood mixed with mucus . Can you advise, I feel I am chronic now

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

This duration indeed qualifies to be called chronic.
You have taken several courses of treatment already..So this time, it is better to wait and get yourself fully investigated. Proper treatment needs proper diagnosis / and it is not often possible by examination alone.

You need Lab tests - blood counts, sputum analysis, blood sugar; possibly for allergy
You need X-ray - Plain Chest and CT scan of your sinuses

You should see an Ear Nose Throat specialist first - your description suggests Sinusitis.
You also need to see a Pulmonologist - your statement suggests asthma.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
