Hello, Welcome to icliniq.
As you have mentioned, you are worried about your symptoms. Considering your history and previous symptoms, you may be having asthma as well as pharyngitis, at present.
I would still advise you some investigations to confirm the diagnosis.
And, if you are suffering from asthma, I would have prescribed you inhalational medication, because they are the best possible medication available for the treatment of Asthma.
Also, I would like to know,if there are any factors resulting in increase in your symptoms.
I hope this helps. Take Care.
