Thank you for your query.
You should consult a primary care physician first and foremost, who would evaluate your wife, and then refer you accordingly to a specialist.
I do not think there is any indication for an emergency visit.
You could take an OTC ( over the counter ) cough syrup and painkiller for her meanwhile.
Please schedule an appointment with your primary care physician.
take care.
