Number of things...: This could be anything from a bacterial sinus infection that has caused upper airway inflammation, ear infection to acute bronchitis to any number of viral illness. Viral is most likely with headaches and vertigo, stay hydrated! the crackles could be mucus in upper airways, even draining from sinuses or ears. If you have an increase in shortness of breath and is concerning to you, er if worried.

Viral: Looks like viral upper respiratory tract infection or bronchitis. You can use otc cough, cold medicine for 5-7 days or until better. Do salt water gargling 2-3 times a day for relief of sore throat. Push fluids. Call your doctor if no improvement in 48-72 hrs. Good luck!
