I have had a dry cough for a few days.

I have had a dry cough for a few days. Then all of a sudden as my cough became more frequent, I would get a stabbing pain on the right side of my mid back. When that happens, it hurts to takes even small breaths. This is my second day of taking azithromycin 250 mg. So far it hasn’t done anything. I don’t have shortness of breath. The coughing, back pain and general malaise is taking it’s toll. I’ve moved recently and my family doctor is 1.5 hours away. He tries to help me via phone, but I afraid maybe this is more serious than we think. What do you think? My fever got as high as 101.5 when I called the doctor. It has come down, but all other symptoms remain. Judy age 69
