I have an allergy problem with wheezing. Allergy has been there for 2 years. Wheezing is very rare based on some dust and odor along with heavy food intake.

During the change in season frequently I suffer from sore throat, chronic cough, wheezing, breathlessness with sneezing, sleeplessness, weakness and pains. Most of the times I feel itching throughout the body especially legs, arms and back. I frequently develop a sore mouth and a tendency to develop frequent cold and bouts of sneezing. I get breathless while climbing stairs, nose gets blocked and I frequently suffer from backache. I have pain or stiffness in neck, pain or stiffness in any of the joints, have pain in the buttocks going down to my legs.
