Infection.: Possibilities for your current symptoms include acute sinusitis, acute bronchitis, upper respiratory infection, allergies or even pneumonia.

Go see your doctor: Tight chest w/dry cough makes me think of bronchoconstriction or wheezing. This is a relatively common symptom of respiratory infections so it's best to go see family doc. A short acting bronchodilator such as albuterol will most likely take care of tight chest. With that said, this is all speculation. If you feel lightheaded, nauseated, short of breath, chest pain/pressure, don't wait. Call 911. ...Read more

Asthma: Just because you don't have a low oxygen saturation does not mean you don't have significant asthma. Have they done pulmonary function testing? You need to see a Family Doc experienced with Asthma, an Allergist or a Pulmonologist. I see no reason it should cost that much. This is an everyday problem that we care for all the time. ...Read more
