If : If you are having fever and cough or any sob, i would suggest that you see a primary care physician so that he or she can listed to your lungs to see if you have pneumonia and evaluate you for a possible outpatient chest x-ray. Although Amoxicillin is good for strep, it may not be appropriate for you if you have a pneumonia. If you are just having the pain, especially with a cough, you may have pulled a muscle. Good luck.
