Bronchitis, allergies, breathing problems, post nasal drip. History of stress, panic attacks. Treatment?

I am a healthy 60 year old woman who had a bad case of bronchitis a year ago but am still having breathing problems occasionally. My heart and lungs have been checked out. I suffer from allergies and take medications . I also have a lot of post nasal drip . I have always had panic attacks and stress and I am not sure where to go from here.My blood pressure and heart rate are great. I do get exhausted when climbing stairs. My weight is perfect and I am very active. Thanks

Hi, Cramerskc,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having allergic bronchitis but as you feel exhausted climbing upstairs there is a possibility of having COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).
Consult pulmonologist and go for investigations.
Do deep respiratory breathing exercise and use spirometer for this exercise.
Stay away from dust,smoke etc.
Ok and bye.
