Probably bronchitis, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a respiratory tract infection such as bronchitis.

I recommend using acetaminophen instead of ibuprofen to treat the headache and the back pain.

I also recommend taking a cycle of antibiotics.

In my daily practice, I prescribe Augmentin 625 mg twice a day for five days.

You should consult your doctor for this treatment because is on prescription.

I also recommend to use an antihistamine to relieve the breathing difficulties such as Loratadine 10 mg.

I recommend to drink plenty of fluids and use a humidifier at home.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
