For the past 3 days my chest feels heavy or tight like when I have bronchitis. Breathing is normal. Mild cough. Is it a chest cold? Tea makes it better

Bronchospasm... This sounds like you are having bronchospasm for some reason. The chest tightness and mild cough, especially if dry, are signs of bronchospasm. The caffeine in the tea is helping to dilate the breathing tubes. If it continues or worsens, see your doctor to find out why you have it and to treat it more effectively. You may need a bronchodilator inhaler, for example. Good luck!!! Read more...

I'm experiencing soreness and tightness in my lower throat, back of neck and upper chest. No cough and am breathing fine. Not reflux?

URI. The first thing I would consider is the beginning of a viral upper respiratory tract infection with nasal congestion and some cough to follow. Treatment consists of rest, drinking adequate fluids, gargling with warm salt water or sucking on lozenges. If sore throat persists or worsens, a throat culture to check for strep(which is treated with antibiotics) is indicated. Discuss this with your MD. Read more...
