Exam advised: This could be a viral upper respiratory tract infection that can resolve with only resting, drinking adequate fluids, taking Tylenol and cough syrup, but I'm concerned about the fever,chills and overall severity of your symptoms. A bacterial pneumonia requiring a chest xray and antibiotics is a real possibility. Urgent evaluation is important especially if you believe that symptoms are worsening.
