Hi and thanks for the query,
It shall be very important to take your temperature to know whether you are running a temperature or not. A past history of other diseases like asthma could be important to know. If you have been coughing or not can be important,
Persistent chest pain might require a chest X ray. Coupled with blood examination might help in determining whether the cause of your symptoms is infectious or not. I suggest you visit the emergency room for a clinical evaluation and management. While waiting, you might keep warm and take a simple analgesic.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
