Hi I am new to the forums and I was just diagnosed with asthma and allergies and mild bronchitits, I have had this phlegm build up for months and everytime I cough I can feel it make like a moving up and down motion in my throat but its not coming out...My doc just keeps giving me allegra or albuterol but I am scared that this isnt consistent with allergies or asthma, has anyone heard of this or had this?

Thanks alot

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. This is pretty much consistent with allergies and asthma. Adequate dosages, allergens prevention and compliance to medications are mainstay . Chest physiotherapy helps. Allergen immunotherapy and bronchial thermoplasty are options too.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
