Chest is on fire

I have been sick since Feb.  My chest seems to be on fire.  Feel like it is
burning.  What do I have?  Antibiotics didn't work.  Got a flu shot in
Feb. as well.  Don't know what to do.  What is it.  Phlegm is heavy in
morning and night as well as congestion.  Can the flu last for this many
months.  Does any body have these symptoms?  What will make it
go away.  Please reply if you know.  Desperate now.  Thank you for
any and all input.

Hi:  Thank you for writing.  I am fine now.  After taking Nasonex (still on
it)   and advair things got much better.  Everything from my nose was
dripping and congesting my chest so I had wheezing and burning etc.
When my nose cleared up so did my chest.  I went to an e.n.t. dr. and
this is what he had prescribed thank God.  I was starting to lose my
mind.  Had so much work to do and was too ill to do it.  Now I am o.k.
Hope you are well too.  Many thanks for writing.
