Shortness of breath and body ache

Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni

Hi Doctor, I am 37yrs old. I find it difficult to have deep breath. I need to take deep breath frequently when I am eating. I had nose block and after taking medicine it is under control. This has been for about 2 weeks and I never had this issue before. I have finished the antibiotics Augmentine and continue taking medicine for wind but it is still the same. On top of this, I’m having bad bodyache and light breast pain. Kindly advise.
