Sore throat, coughing and chest pain with loss of voice. Swollen stomach. Need to see a doctor?

Hello, I m 19 and I had a sore throat 4 days ago, then 3 days ago I started coughing and having a chest pain then a day after that the pain stopped but the coughing increased and I lost my voice completely. Today I woke up having the worst chest and throat pain ever and the coughing has increased and also my stomach is swollen and aching me. I m using panadol cold and flu , clarinase and drinking lots of hot fluids. Is that enough or should I go and see a doctor?

Hi thanks for your question.
You have developed upper respiratory tract infection,espicially pharyngitis(throat infection) and laryngitis (infection of voice box).Laryngitis is responsible for loss of voice.The treatment you are reciving is not sufficient ,you need to consult an ENT specialist who may be able to examine your pharynx and larynx and may prescribe appropriate treatment.
Hope this answers your question.
