Hallo Cyril
You may have asthma. Please see your doctor and ask him to listen to your lungs and do the necessary tests to confirm or exclude asthma ( lung x/ray and lung function test). See if it helps if you take Alcophyllex cough syrup. Just remember that you should not take this 24 hours before a lung function test. Follow the prescribing instructions on the bottle carefully as an overdose can be harmful.
