Question: 37 year old, fit female, non-smoker, good diet however often have issues with digestive system due to food intolerances; I returned from a two week holiday in Bali and Kuala Lumpur two weeks ago with a very bad cold; usual symptoms of the cold subsided very quickly and only a lot of mucus lingered, this is now almost clear; over the past week, I have noticed I'm having great difficulty breathing, it almost feels like I'm not breathing at all as if I am at high altitude, which I'm not (I live in inner-city Melbourne)- I am constantly gasping for air, can you suggest an appropriate course of action? Thank you

Hi,

Thank you for your query.

As you are having difficulty in breathing I suggest that you visit the emergency (ER) so that you can be examined and managed. After an lower respiratory tract infection. This lower respiratory tract infection is causing the symptom of difficulty in breathing and gasping.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert in case you need any clarifications or would like to share more facts of the incident.

Wishing you an early recovery.

Regards,

RKK

Hi, I have what seems like continuous nasal drip down my throat which makes my saliva very slimy and it bothers my throat, its like this mucus is getting stuck in my throat and I need to clear my throat all the time. I have had this symptom every day for the past year or so. I went to see an ENT and he could not explain why this was happening, he suggested that it might be due to acid reflux, I took nexium for 30 days and it did not help, I even had a gastroscopy/endoscopy and everything seemed fine. In the past 2 days, I feel this film in my throat and upper respiratory tract and when I breath in and out I feel this film and as if I am not breathing normally. How can I get rid of this.
