ENT Specialist Dr. A.K. Srivastava's  Response

Welcome in H.C.M.

After reading your clinical history I came to knew that you are haing most likely acute upper respiratory tract infection leading to sore throat, pain in throat with greenish sputum mixed with blood.
Your short of breath specially in winters also favors the respiratory tract infection with special attension for involvement of lower respiratory tract as upper respiratory tract infection usually doesnot produce breathlessness unless there is marked oedema.

But as a rule in all dyspnoea patients cardiac functions should be tharoughly examined. Therefore you are advice for-

1- X-Ray chest (P.A.view).

2- culture & sensitivity of throat swab.

3- X-Ray paranasal sinuses.

4- Blood- CBC, ESR,

By the help of these investigations and there clinical co-relation one may reach to correct doagnosis that may be accordingly manage.

Dear sir,

You could be having allergy related bronchitis but the pain seems unrelated . Kindly see an ENT surgeon for evaluation .
