Hi, if you havent already seen a doctor make an appointment asap, it sounds like a minor chest infection nothing to really worry about you'll just need antibiotics if thats what it is. Aslo look at your diet etc is it balanced? do you eat plenty of protien, fruit and veg? and do you sleep well? all these things can affect your health. x

Girl get yourself to the doctor. You probably have an upper respiratory infection and that is not going to get better without antibiotics. You need antibiotics. Or you could have bronchitis. That also needs antibiotics. If you don't get treatment it could turn into pneumonia.

Just go. It's not a big deal. And yes I have had friends who were sick with a cold like the one you describe.
