Brief Answer:
Contact your doctor

Detailed Answer:
I am sorry you are having these symptoms.

The most common cause of this issue is bronchitis or pneumonia BUT you need to have a Chest X-ray done as soon as possible for an adequate assessment.

There is a small chance this could be more serious which is why you need to see your doctor as soon as possible.
