Time for Dr: Sounds like there might be an issue in your chest, and/or you are having stress/anxiety issue(s)--which combine to lower ur immunity, worsen allergies / asthma, increase muscle spasm & just make u miserable. Get a dr's exam & management plan.

Tx anxiety/symptoms: It sounds as though you have some physical issues to deal with, all of which are magnified greatly by your anxiety. All need to be attended to. Best of luck!
