Cough, yellow phlegm, nausea after eating, stomach pressure, light headedness, feeling of blood rushing to head, low grade fever. Help?

Hi. For about 3 months Ive had phlegm production that is yellow on color. I had a cough for a few weeks, which has gone away now. I get nauseous after eating, with the feeling of pressure on my stomach . I get very light headed if I hold my breath for a few seconds, and I feel all the blood rushing back to my head when I let go of the breath. I have a low-grade fever. Also it takes more energy than normal to breath in deeply. Not sure what is going on. Can you help?

General Surgeon 's  Response

Usual viral or minor bacterial infection subsides on its own within say 7-10 days, but the persistence of symptoms at 3 months is not usual.

The definite management requires thorough history, physical examination and x-ray chest with lab results for WBC count evaluation.

Primary relief with antacid as omeprazole and antispasmodic as dicyclomine would like to relieve you at present.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
