Welcome and thank you for posting in HCM
Per your description you are suffering from an respiratory tract
infection and an associated pharyngitis
(inflammation of the pharynx). This affections are typically caused by viruses (but with very moderate fever
37.5-38.5 degree Celsius) but when fever is very high with swollen throat (tonsils, uvula
and pharynx ) it is generally bacterial infection ( strep). Having respiratory signs like shortness of breath
, chest pains etc typically indicate a respiratory affection which could be an extension of the germs in the pharynx. For diagnosis, a rapid streptococcal test or a throat swap + culture have to be done to rule out possible bacterial infection. Chest x-ray is also important to rule out pneumonia
. Your asthma
symptoms are present as a result of the affection which has provoked the crisis since you are a known asthmatic and microbes affecting your respiratory tract might induce asthma symptoms and even exacerbate them. You will need to see your doctor soonest for prompt management before it gets any worst. Steroidal/non-steroidal antiinflammatory, antipyretics and antibiotics would have to be administered either orally or intravenously depending on the severity of your condition. Bronchodilators would also need to be administered.
I believe you will require emergency medical attention.
Hope this helps
