These symptoms are also much worse in the morning. I have talked to my family doctor but he s just set me up on two scripts of biaxin , which has helped but its only been a temporary fix.. Can you help ?

Hi thanks for your question.
The symptoms you have described are of upper respiratory tract infection,but since symptoms are there for months together ,these needs to be investigated.
Consult a physician specialist to investigate youself for persistent symptoms.
You may need complete blood count ,sputum examination and chest X Ray and many more tests to know the cause of your symptoms.
Hope this answers your questions.
