Have fever, runny nose, headache and runny eyes. Started coughing. Is it bronchitis, asthma or Pneumonia?

I have had bad flu in the past three days: high fever,runny nose , headaches , muscles pains, watery eyes. It kept me in bed for three unusual days! I will be turning 62 years of age first week of August (female). I am feeling agitated with my throat: I keep coughing, hardly any phlegm coming out, affecting my breathing , and there is this persistent, annoying sound in my throat rverytime I breath - maybe because it s dry? I can t sleep because of this disturbance. Is it bronchitis? asthma? Pneumonia? I plan to see my GP tomorrow. Please advise. Greatly appreciated? Mrs V, Australia

Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
You are suffering from viral infection. This may turn into bacterial infection if you dont take proper precautions. I think its not bronchitis or pneumonia yet. So consult your physician for further management.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
