Fever, sore throat, coughing, chest pain, gagging. History of pancreatitis, gall bladder condition. Treatment?

About 3 weeks ago i got sick with fever, sore throat feeling generally crappy. Took a few days off to rest. Started feeling better although i developed a cough . Just kind of went about buisness as usual and its been the same. Rattling in my chest, coughing to the point where i gag and throw up at times. My medical history is pretty simple. Im 42 and the only medical issue ive had is a bout of pancreatitis that was pretty severe due to gallbladder problems. And that was 4 years ago. Any siggestions?

Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
On the basis of information provided it appears that you have a chest infection. It could be a pneumonic patch (infection of lung substance) or bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi). The complaint of cough leading to vomiting is also suggestive of a possible gastrointestinal cause for your problem.

I would advise you for a Physician consultation, X ray chest and a blood test to come down to the diagnosis.
Stay away from alcohol (if you take alcohol)and smoking (if you smoke).
Avoid hot and spicy food

I hope this answers your concerns. Feel free to contact me if your need more information on this

With warm regards
