First of all thank you for reading and maybe helping me about this.

About a week ago, I started feeling like if something was stuck in my throat and then it seems like if it's getting worse every day. I can breathe but I feel like if something's just going to block it completely all of a sudden. I also chest pain from time time.

I didn't see any doctors yet, I am a little overweight and also had chest pain for quite sometime now, I have arrhythmia and had asthma/bronchitis when I was young (7-12 years) with severe episodes but they disappeared when I changed countries.

I also feel like I have to cough to get it out but nothing comes out besides sputum.

Last but not least, starting from the cuticle up to the center of my fingernails it seems to be darker pink/purple color and the rest are white.

I also don't feel very good today compared to other days.

Any help would be very appreciated and I will see a doctor on tuesday.

Thank you

  • I went to see a doctor a few days ago and they did an X-Ray, Blood Works and Examination.The doctor gave me Flovent (the inhalation aerosol for asthma) to see if using it makes my breathing problems go away but if it doesn't then it means it's something else and should go away.I use the aerosol 2 inhalations 3 times a day. now and we'll see if it makes a difference. They told me that lungs are very clean and I have 99% Pulse OX which is perfect.They have subscribed me for a straining test and an echo cardiogram, I will take appointments for both and see what happens.They said not to worry about the dark pink/purple color under my fingernails.I will post developments here so others can learn from it.

It occurs when the trachea (windpipe) and the large and small bronchi (airways) within the lungs become inflamed because of infection or other causes.
