Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I experience bronchiectasis, chest pain, and shortness of breath due to mucus and phlegm. I have mild asthma and an allergy. I use a nebulizer and an inhaler and take a tablet Movex for asthma with saltwater.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor for the reply,

I have again attached my computed tomography (CT) scan. Please have a look.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I reviewed the computed tomography (CT) scan you attached (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity). I found that the lungs and airways are clear, which means there might be an infection in the upper airways. I believe that the chest pain could be due to coughing or other causes. Do not worry, as the chest pain is not due to a heart block. You do not have any serious disease, so medical treatment will be beneficial.


Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
