Cold, fever, cough, chest pain, nose and throat congestion. Pneumonia?

I’ve been sick for 2 weeks and seen the doctor 3 times. 1st week was a horrible cold w/o fever. Then symptoms came back with 101+ fever. Symptoms include: horrible cough that won’t go away, sore throat/ chest pain from cough, nightly 101-103 fever for 6+ days, nose and throat congestion, difficulty breathing through nose, (slightly) coughing up mucus, chills, fatigue. The congestion is going away in nose, and I’ve had relief from sinus pressure. My fever is continuing to rise daily, even after 4 days on Bactrim; ibuprofen helps. I don’t feel any better, aside from slight congestion relief. No doctors have run tests/ done x-rays. Never had a sinus infection like this. Just started Cipro yesterday. Could this be pneumonia even if chest “sounds clear”?

dear user
with all your symptom this looks upper respiratory tract infection .
first no need to worry .
as you started antibiotic from yesterday only it will take time at least of 5 days .
1. take antihistamine cetrizine .
2 . take paracetamol for fever
3 , antibiotic for infection
4 . take steam with easy breath capsule 3 times /day .
5 go for nebulization with duolin ( salbutamol)and budecort( budesonide ) will help in breathing .
6 gargle 3 time very much effective

you will take 5-7 days to cure
for drug dosing consult to your doctor
