Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have read your query and here is my advise.

* As per my clinical experience, the above narrated symptoms of pain in lungs on deep breath, dry cough with systemic manifestation of fatigue and fuzzy head indicate underlying lower respiratory tract infection most likely.

* The basic examination of respiratory and cardiac system with vital parameters as BP,
blood sugar would be the prime requirement with your consultant and x-ray chest, lab
reports, pulmonary function test and other advance modalities requirement would be
the clinician concern.
