Med eval: There is very little info here. Are you a smoker? Have you had contact with cleaning or other chemicals? Do you have cough, shortness of breath or fever? With paucity of info, i can only encourage you to seek medical evaluation for any difficulty with breathing, chest pain - especially if associated with fatigue, nausea, radiation to neck, back or down arms.
