Bad cough, dry and sore throat, green phlegm, fatigue, plugged nose. Reason?

I have had a really bad cough for over a month now. It started with a sore, dry throat , but quickly progressed. I have been coughing up green phlegm a lot and it is hard for me to breathe when I sleep sometimes, and even during the day. I have been feeling very fatigued and my nose feels very plugged, but I can breathe fine through it. I know this is not just a cold, because this has never happened before. Any ideas of what it could be?

hi there, looks like what started out as an upper respiratory tract infection is now more serious and you will need to get an x ray of the chest done and visit a physician who can check your breath sounds and rule out lower respiratory infection. You will definitely need a course of antibiotics to take care of the infection . Do get attention of your physician now. Take care.
