Something else?: Colds, as is said, "last for a week if you treat them; 7 days if you don't," When symptoms last more that a week, something else might be going on. Colds can set the stage for other respiratory problems like sinusitis, bronchitis and asthma. I recommend you get this checked out, and, if you have a thermometer, check your temperature as well.

You Need An Exam: You should talk to your physician or go to a clinic or emergency room quickly. You could have a flu, pneumonia or other serious infection which needs immediate attention.

Go to ER: If you are having constant chest pain you need to go the ER. If you are having chest pain only with a deep breath that is likely due to a bacterial bronchitis which might be due to strep.. See your doc today or try Healthtap Prime for treatment (unless your chest pain is constant and you go to the ER).
