It sounds very much like you have chronic hay fever and a post-nasal drip.  Given that you cannot breath properly, it is also possible that you may have asthma.  However, there are so many reasons why you might be having chronic cough and difficulty in breathing.  You need to see a doctor to investigate and treat these underlying possibilities including getting a chest x-ray.
