Funky lung feeling

So, for about a month now, every time I take a breath, and especially walking outside in the cold (I live in Nova Scotia), I feel like someone has scrubbed the inside of my lungs with a brillo pad. I know this is a strange word picture, but, it is all I can think of to liken it to. It feels like the back of my throat is coated in sugar and like I could throw up, a great deal of the time. It makes no sense. 

Now, I had a cold, and I went through the flu....what could this possibly be? Bronchitis? Pneumonia? I am a non-smoker, I don't smoke pot or anything...what could it be? I DO have asthma. Thank you!!

    I forgot to mention, when I try to take a large breath, I usually wind up with this piddly little cough too. I bought some cough drops the other day, and they aren't really doing anything. But, if I try to take a deep breath, I wind up coughing a bit, and when lying in bed I am wheezing while breathing out. 

    I have been taking a mucous pill daily for quite awhile, could that be hurting me at all?

    Hello, I’ve had sepsis and Pneumonia now for  over 4 weeks now was in hospital for 5 days due to sepsis. I thought I had just a common cold/ flu but mine was serious and I wouldn’t take any risks at all go see a doctor. Hope you feel better soon
