I have cough for about 4 weeks and i have antibiotic treatment for the first 2 weeks. Now still coughing with mucus(sometimes thick green)&chest pain?

Get reevaluated: Without discussing your symptoms and medical history with you, and examining you, it's not possible to give specific advice. Most acute coughs are due to a Viral Bronchitis, don't respond to antibiotics and slowly improve over 2-3 weeks. Sometimes the cough lasts longer. Persistent cough could also be due to inadequately treated pneumonia. See Dr for reevaluation. May or may not need a chest x-ray ...Read more

Correct class of med: Altace is an ace inhibitor- this medication class can be very helpful. Given your degree of hypertension, i would suspect this particular one (altace) may not be sufficient. I would consider another ace inhibitor such as Lisinopril which may be more helpful to control bp. ...Read more

Usually, the chems are kept in balance. in some individuals, the endothelium has a bias or predisposition to one or the other. The slightest thing can set it off.

Is pulmonary HTN (moderate) could be characterized by days better than others in chest pain or discomfort& general status? + i don't get any treatment

Yes. Depends on many: Pulmonary hypertension affects not only the lungs but also the heart (as the two organs are very closely connected). Using oxygen (continuously) will generally help, but depending on the conditions of the day (heart status, blood pressure, pollution, smoke, &c) you can clearly have some days worse than others. It's important to get properly tested & have diagnosis confirmed (right heart cath). ...Read more
