You may still have underlying asthma if you still have a tight chest from time to time. It may be worthwhile doing a lungfunction test to check. If you don't smoke the phlegm could be due to a low grade chronic bronchitis and your doctor may need to order a chest x/ray and send some sputum to the lab to check.
