Detailed Answer:
Hi, thank you for posting at HCM.

After reading your description, I think I have understood your condition.

I think your symptoms may be related to an allergic rhinitis and laryngitis, which may be caused by either environmental causes or one of the medications you are using for your arthritis.

I recommend you to get the following tests: pulmonary X-Ray, complete blood count and leukocyte count.

You should also see your allergist to discuss about your condition. The above tests will determine your diagnosis and aid your allergist in giving you a treatment.

Please let me know if there's any further doubts..

Wish you good health,
Dr. Behar Greca
