Hello,

As per my clinical experience, the condition with chest tightness and throat discomfort with cough, post nasal drip indicate possible upper respiratory infection with some sort of virus or bacteria most likely.

Though primary relief with gargles and off the counter medicines can be obtained, I prefer you to get one time physician check up for upper respiratory tract as supportive antibiotics, anti viral and decongestant medications will help to resolve the issue faster and prevent secondary complications of infection.

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

Thank you. Take care.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
