Asthma concern

Hi,
Over the last 3 months, I have developed a wheezy cough that won''t go away. It happens anytime of day, chest feels tighter and difficulty taking deep breaths. If I am out at night, its worse.

The doc said I am allergic to cheese, dust and pollen but I feel i get the cough no matter what I am exposed to.

Should I get it rechecked, maybe it could be asthma?
Should I see a lung specialist and get an Xray
or is it just an irritant/ hay fever and will go away

Advice?

Thanks

Hallo Wheezy
It may be worth your while to see a physician or pulmonologist to exclude asthma or underlying infection with a lungfunction test and x/ray of the lungs. Ask your doctor to refer you
