Go see your doctor: Most people can deal w/common cold symptoms w/o going to see their doc. Antibiotics won't do a thing for the common cold. However, you need to go see your doc if you can't breathe as some react to cold w/bronchoconstriction or asthma-like symptoms that do require prescription drugs. Don't wait until you're found unconscious. If you can't breathe, seek medical attention immediately.

Time to be seen: Although the symptoms initially were suggestive of a common cold, the significant chest/lung symptoms could be related to pneumonia (viral) or a secondary bacterial infection. Less likely possibilities are heart complications. Either way, time to see your doctor.
