See a doctor: The symptoms might be caused by irritation of your airways or lung tissue, but might also represent an infection of the airways (bronchitis) or lungs (pneumonia). It is best to see a doctor as soon as possible. If you develop difficulty breathing in the meantime it would be best to go to the ER. Good luck!
