Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you are having chronic bronchitis.
Your ESR is a bit high.
Go for Eosiophilic count, which again gives this type of picture.
Go for X-ray chest to know any problem in the lungs.
After report go for treatment accordingly.
Do deep breathing exercise.
Ok and bye.

Hi Nashra,
i feel you have asthma and acid reflux too. You should go for a lung function test and meet a pulmonologist for the same..Asthma if diagnosed early, can be treated with the right medications.Hope that helps your concern.
