Advair won't help: a doctor's visit would, you need to see your doctor or any doctor for evaluation, and with such symptoms you don't want to use advair! as it shouldn't be used with asthma flare or suspicion of (cannot be used as a rescue medicine) , better use albuterol only if you have till you see your doctor, to make sure it is not your heart, also you may need some treatment for your upper airways, good luck
