Welcome to

Your workup has to be done as follow:

  1. Auscultation.
  2. Posterior pharynx examination.
  3. CBC.

If throat congestion is present than decongestant like Levocetirizine can be prescribed for that. For dyspnea, CBC will rule out anemia if present and it will also help in abnormal respiratory sound if present. Then, if needed after auscultation, further workup done in form of chest X-ray. Abdominal pain could be from viral gastritis and Pantoprazole can be prescribed for that. But consult the nearby physician for examination as difficult breathing also present. Provide any stress or anxiety history if present for giving further comment.

Take care.
