This combination of symptoms warrants medical evaluation. With the chest tightness & shortness of breath - wouldn't put it off.

If you're no longer having sweats, feverishness, or producing discolored sputum, you may be recovering from a bronchial infection that began as a viral infection and you probably don't need a chest X-Ray at this time. For a dry, hacking cough, take a cough suppressant syrup like robitussinDM. If your symptoms worsen instead of resolving, you must be examined by a physician.

Should see a pulmonary doctor to evaluate for infectious or allergic cause or other sources of problem like cardiac. Do not delay. Those symptoms need attention

You may have viral induced bronchospasm. Do you smoke and is there a history of asthma? please see your PCP.
