You need to get evaluated for respiratory system once for asthma or pneumonia or only upper respiratory tract infection as these are mainly responsible for acute onset of illness. So you need evaluation once using xray chest and examination.

Till then take antiinflammatory drug like aceclofenac with anti histamine like cetrizine, do regular salt water gargle three times a day and steam inhalation. These will help you.

Hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask if any further queries and I will be glad to answer them.
