Having breathing difficulty and cough. Had fever. Is it serious?

Hi. I have been feeling pretty unwell for about 2 weeks. For about 3 days I felt I had a very bad flu but after my fever has subsided and I m no longer very conjested. Now I have a really persistent cough , but this is weird too. I don t constantly cough, I am virtually fine for periods of time (3min-1hr) and then will cough really hard and not be able to breathe. I also have a bit of a burning itchy sensation when I inhale deeply, but not in my throat . I m a bit confused what this could be?

Hello. U were initially having upper respiratory tract infection with symptoms of throat congestion and flu. Now u probably developed lower respiratory tract infection and sinusitis with involvement of lung parenchyma. It probably is Pneumonia. U had to perform Chest Xray and labs such as Blood CP for elevated TLC count to check for infection in blood and Xray PNS to rule out Sinusitis. U should visit hospital and go through the foolowing tests and examination by your physician for appropriate antibiotics and anti histamines that can be levofoxacin and Loratidine and Pseudoephedrine in ur case and Paracetamol as antipyretic.
