Uncomfortable feeling in right side of chest

Hi everyone, in addition to the above i have tenderness and discomfort in my shoulder, up the right side of my neck to my ear, sinus and right eye. I also want to cough all the time, feels like i have a small hair stuck in my throat a couple of inches below my adams apple.

I've had this on and off for quite a few years now, sometimes it settles down on its own, other times the doc will give me anti biotics that calm it down but i still sense it's there waiting to come back.

Anybody have experience with this kind of thing?

Should i insist on tests?

Any advice is most appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Thank you everybody for your replies, I'll insist on getting proper tests.

Take care.

Wayne.

Anything which bothered me, and that kept coming back, would have me asking for further tests to determine the cause.

I think you need to be referred to the ENT department at the hospital as this has been going on for so many years now. Ask your GP for a referral.

Hope all goes well for you Wayne
