Asthma but get x-ray: Asthma is probably the cause of your symptoms, but you need to have a chest x-ray to make sure you don't have an infection causing the symptoms. Also, we don't know much about you like if you smoke, what kind of work you do, or if you have been sick, etc. See an allergy specialist to have this worked up.
