Suggest remedy for cough with phlegm

I have had a cough for about three weeks now. It has gotten progressively worse with wheezing and phlegm and now every time I laugh, run, breathe cold air...etc I go into a fit. I'm not sure if it's related to the reason I'm writing this, but it might be. Every time I step heel-first, flip my hair, jump, or turn my head to fast it feels like the right side of my brain bounces. Also, I'm not sure if this is the best way to describe it, but if you've ever had a cavity and bit down on metal and you taste a sort of metallic pain...that's also what it sort of feels like. Any feedback?

Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding cough and phlegm for last three weeks. This is disturbing your day to day activities. I would like to tell you that as per your clinical history the possibilities in your case may be-

1- Tonsillopharyngitis.

2- Upper respiratory tract infection with sinusitis.

3- Pneumonitis.

4- Bronchitis with brochectasis.

I would like to suggest you to consult your physician for examination to find out site of lesion and do some necessary investigations to decide the nature of pathology. Once the site and nature of pathology is discovered one may easily make the diagnosis and that accordingly treatment may be plan.
