When I take a deep intake of breath, say when I'm going to cough I get an uncomfortable pain in the side of my neck and in to my left ear. I also get a tight feeling across the top of my chest. This has only started since the muggy weather began on Wednesday and I have put it down to that. However, I'm beginning to wonder if it's a chest infection of a sort. I am coughing more again but my phlegm production hasn't got any worse and it is still white/clear when I do bring it up. I have had the taste of blood again in my mouth when I cough but not worried about that as that is fairly common with me when my cough worsens.
