Chest pain, coughing, fever. What to do?

Hello, I have been sick for over a week and just haven t improved. I ve actually gotten worse. I have chest pain and I literally cough every second of the day. Sometimes its a deep, body wretching cough and most the time it is like a weird high pitched cough. My chest hurts and it keeps me up and night and I now have a fever . I don t know what to do.

It`s high time you went for some basic investigations like Hb, TLC, DLC, ESR, AEC, Sputum test-gram stain and ZN stain and a chest x ray. The pain could be because of laryngotracheobronchitis or it could be pneumonia or could be because of excessive coughing. If all tests are normal, take a course of antibiotics, some pain killer and cough syrup after consulting your GP. If tests show up anything you may either post them on HCM or go to your GP.
