Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum

With a BP of 132/60 and the pulse 59, it could not be anxiety.

If you are having chest pains, your doctor has ruled out heart problem, then it could be due to labored breathing. If you have stuffy nose, try OTC anti allergics and decongestants. These along with steam can help relieve congestion a lot.

It is difficult to comment beyond that on net. If symptoms persist despite this treatment go back to your doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
