Pulmonologist 's  Response
Hi,
I suggest you visit a Pulmonologist /Chest Physician. Going by your symptoms you seem to have developed a respiratory infection (acute bronchitis) and need to atleast get sputum examination and chest xray. Also a course of antibiotic is required considering your symptoms.
Thus you need to visit a Pulmonologist and get yourself clinically evaluated as soon as possible.
