Brief Answer:
For how long has this been going on?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these symptoms that you have reported. I have reviewed them entirely and they are not very specific for a given disease condition. I will like to know for how long this has been going on and whether there has been any associated coughing. Wheezing and breathing difficulties is typical of asthmatic attack but mucus in stools and night sweating are not explained by this. Because the symptoms are all over the place with no specific diagnosis, I will often suggest that you get a comprehensive medical testing and at least a baseline chest x-ray to make sure there is nothing we are missing out on.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.

I wish you well and keep me updated about this.
