I am 28 years old, not overweight, somewhat active, and a smoker for 10 years (I know it's bad, I am trying to quit).

I have always had a problem with acid reflux. Sometimes I feel like food gets stuck between my nose and mouth. I am familiar with both of these feelings, so they do not alarm me.

What is alarming me is everything I am about to list. I have been coughing up super sticky phelgm for a couple of months now. It sometimes has tiny brown spots in it. I also get super sticky mucus in my nose that is usually white in color ( can even be opaque) and is very difficult to remove. If it dries in my nose it feels like I have put glue in my nose. The last couple of mornings, there has also been blood in this. It can't be dry air because I sleep with my head inches from a humidifier.

Occassionally I feel heavy pressure in my chest. It only lasts a couple of seconds, but it is very scary and it takes my breath away...like it was pushed out of me. This is either accompanied by or is directly following a rapid heartbeat that lasts only seconds.

I have pain behind my right ear that radiates down my neck, under my jaw, over the right collar bone, and through my right should. I have constant dull, light pain in my right calf in the inside of my leg where the muscle meets the bone, and overall general muscle discomfort everywhere else. I have also been experiencing some teeth pain in my molars and on most days my tongue is coated white (yuck).

Generally, I feel like crap most days. I just want to feel better.

Does anyone know what is wrong with me?
