It`s clear from your description that you are suffering from allergy ie asthma. However you need to undergo a xray chest (which you have alredy got done ) and a spirometry ie PFT. There after you need to start taking inhaler medicines like asthalin and seroflo. You should also take Montair LC. Do some deep breathing exercises, avoid smoke, dust, cold blast, cold drinks and artificially flavoured and coloured food.
