Mucus In The Throat And Shortness Of Breath?
about 3 weeks ago I suddenly had shortness of breath, after being taken to the doctor and was hospitalized for 2 days there were no signs of illness, only my triglyceride lab results were a bit high and the X-ray results of the lungs said there was bronchitis but the doctor said it was possible long time krn will continue to appear. Until now the breath has not been perfect because sometimes it is still tight and there is something like mucus in the throat that can’t come out. What is the solution, what doctor should I go to? thanks
