Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Do you feel any heart burn or reflex from the stomach at night? Do you have any sort of dust/smoke/perfume erc allergy? Do you try to clear your throat frequently? Is there any headache associated with runny nose? You can use syrup containing Diphenhydramine, Methanol, Ammonium chloride, Aminophylline and tablet Cetirizine at night.

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

When I get up in the morning my nose keeps running and I have a really bad cough which eases during the day however I get a pain in my chest when I run or walk quickly. Over the past 2 weeks my feet and ankles have started to swell and are very swollen by the end of the day.
