This is Dr. DavidI am sorry you have had these symptoms.chest congestion can be from spring allergies or viral infection. spring pollen cause runny nose and chest congestion from allergies.allergy medications and asthma medications can help allergy lung congestion.are you coughing up mucus? a sputum culture can check for bacterial infection in the lungs.where is your stomach acid? upper abdomen? left or right? constipation can be fixed by laxatives or fiber supplements or drinking more water or eating pruneshave you used these before?
