Mucous plug: you probably have some built up mucous in your lungs. Use some OTC Mucinex (guaifenesin) 1200 mg bid as well as increase your water intake to thin the mucous. It should resolve soon always take deep breaths to help open up the lung area during the day If fever or increased wheezing see PCP
