Brief Answer:

Breathlessness.

Detailed Answer:

Hello!

I can understand your concern.

As you explain the history if you will have several breathlessness, high fever or continuing coughs than you probably should go to ER to get medical help.

This seems like a viral situation of the throat and the larynx.

Don't worry I don't think you will need the ER.

Hope to have been helpful.
