I’m 29yo female. Feel chest tightness when taking deep breath. This issue already last for at least 2months. No travel to high risk countries recently. No fever or flu. But cough sometimes (no phlegm). But I can feel something stuck at my throat (upper). I went to visit ENT specialist last year Nov and doctor claimed that I got sinusitis. I still can breath normally, I wonder sinusitis will cause chest tightness or maybe other health issue I’m facing?
