I was taking PAN L or Esoguard for gastric problem. I not suffering from fever or a cough but sometimes my one side of my nose will be blocked(Little) and I experience a breathing problem a little might be some 5 percentage to 10 percentage. Also, I will be experiencing some sort of sensation in the nose.

When I rub the itching area I will experience burning sensation. Sometimes when I bend or turn I will experience a little itching or burning in the chest area i.e two inches from the middle of the chest or itching will happen below from there and in the side, i.e below the arm area.

Is there any problem. Sometimes identify the itching or pain while breathing i.e 5% to 10%
