What causes pain in the trachea upon deep breathing?

Trachea is getting quite painful when taking deep breaths. Have had post nasal drip for week. Does not hurt to swallow, only breathing. Cough developed 3 days ago, always clearing phlegm in throat. Diagnosed with Afib recently. Can only sleep sitting up. Always hard to take deep breaths and nose is always stuffed up.

I am 26. when I breath in cold air especially during sleeping my pipe will be dry. To day when I started deep breathing I felt pain over my trachea at the beginning sternum area. For the past two months I am also suffering from bad breath and I have tried to clean my teeth but no improvement even when my mouth is closed people smell something bad.

pain/burning in trachea during inhaling and exhaling- on prednisone currently and it continues to be bothersome. It becomes worse on all 4 s, laying on sides. It doesn t seem to me getting any better just consistant. When taking deep breaths if feels similar to how a person may feel after a run in the cold weather.
