persistence of chest pain on treatment suggests resistance of organism to the antibiotic..the infection in the chest would have progressed to need to consult a physician for chest x ray and come to a diagnosis..for pain i would suggest tramadol for 1-2 days and antibiotic with wide spectrum like levoflox for 5 days..u must quit smoking.
