Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should definitely get done chest x ray to identify the severity of lung infection (pneumonia).
If pneumonia is severe then you should start Intravenous antibiotics and fluids.
You may also need Nebulization to relieve chest tightness.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Consult pulmonologist and discuss all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
