Stomach Ache, Cough With Phlegm, Dry Throat And Right Chest Pain?
Hello ,. in this one week my stomach feels very sore and accompanied by a slight cough with phlegm, my throat feels very dry. The right chest hurts like a needle. And my lips are very dry (somewhat cracked) and there appears a small thrush on the inside of the lower lip. Because I have a gastric history, I have taken gastric syrup but it doesn’t heal either. What disease do you think?
