Need help Plzz!!!!!!!

Hello I've been experiencing a cough that's not painful but rather something that's been not going away for about 2 weeks.    And I also get aches right around my heart that kinda feels sharp but it's tolerable and annoying.     My dad is a Huge smoker    Do you think it's affecting my lungs now?   Plzzzz reply thank you

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include respiratory tract infections, inflammations, pleuritis etc. These could be effects of passive smoking as well. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
