Thank you for visiting health24.com.
I really think that the cause of your symptoms is your smoking. Please remember that when you quit smoking, these symptoms will persist after a couple months. I suggest that you consult a GP to have a chest x-ray done, in order to exclude lung cancer and to set your mind at ease. If you have trouble in quitting, you can also ask him about Zyban (this drug can assist in smoking cessation).
