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.

Investigations to be done:

X-ray chest PA view,
Spirometry with bronchodilator reversibility testing.

Probable diagnosis:

Bronchial Asthma

Treatment plan:

(Formoterol 6 mcg + Budesonide 200 mcg) Inahaler with spacer 2 puffs twice daily and can be taken up to 4 times daily if required.
Continue Zycast.

Preventive measures:

Avoid exposure to allergens and smoking.
Take nutritious diet and adequate rest.

PEFR monitoring.
