Customer Question

Since a very painful upper endoscopy in July I have increasingly suffered from shortage of breath (feels like I am being strangled), persistent coughing and lack of sleep. The symptoms are lessened if I am 'up and about' but never completely go away.
I have been prescribed and am currently taking :
-losartan 25mg x 1 per day
-accrete D3 1 x 2 per day
- amlodipine 5mg , x 1 per day
-solfenacin 5mg x1 per day
-asprin 75mg x1 per day
-atorvorstatin 20 mg x1 per day
- dipyriamole 200mg x 1 per day.Some follow a series of TIAs.I am due to see my GP later this week but would value your response
Many thanks,

So what exactly the endoscopy showed? Do you have reflux issues? Post nasal drip (contant dripping of mucous at back of throat)? Do you smoke at all ? Any history of allergies? Food, pollen or drug ?
