Need to be seen. By your doctor, you may very well Rx meds for your upper airways inflammation causing such symptoms, as well you may be having reflux adding to the problem in your throat, and possibly causing your upset stomach.

Just moved/got a cat: itchy/burning lungs/throat, shortness of breath, hard to breathe at night- tightness in chest daily. No known allergies. Cause?

Asthma. The cat must go (so sorry - I love cats!). But the problem doesn't stop there. Just having a cat in your house exposes you to the dander long after the beautiful creature has left. You need to clean EVERYTHING meticulously!!! Scrub, scrub, scrub. (don't forget under the bed!). (also, see your doctor for asthma medicine today). Read more...
Cat allergy. Please get retested for cat allergy . You can do pin prick or the blood method. I suspect it will be positive when you check it. Most doctors would say remove the cat while most patients will reply remove the doctor. If you keep the cat you will need to learn avoidance measures like not sleeping with it in your room and keeping the cat litter and stuff in a separate room of the house. Read more...
