Bronchitis: May be bacterial or viral. Robitussin dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) will relieve cough. I would generally recommend seeing a doctor and if bacterial antibiotics. This does not mean an otherwise healthy individual cannot heal. I can generally do it faster.

Cough, left chest pain and fever?

Possibilities...: If the left chest pain increases with cough and deep breathing, then it is likely related to the other symptoms.

If the left chest pain does not increase w/ above maneuvers, see a doctor today so cardiac etiology can be ruled out. Go to er if needed.

Can I have zitromax tablet for sorethroat and cough? Now I have chest pain and signs of getting fever again.

Zithromax: I would not take an antibiotic unless I knew what I was treating. It sounds like you need to actually go in to see a doctor. Not all sore throats and coughs need antibiotics, but some with chest pain and fever might. Zithromax is also not the first-line treatment for some of the common illnesses we face, but it's popular, many people ask for it, and many doctors are in the habit of prescribing it.

Nonspecific: Those symptoms are nonspecific, which means it could be anything from a 'cold', bronchitis, Gastroesophageal reflux, heart disease, allergic rhinitis, etc... See your doctor.

Haven't slept in days, my cough is so bad sometimes I cough up yellow/ slight pink mucus, but usually its clear. No fevers no chest pain. Pneumonia?

Possibly: It may just be bronchitis. However there is a real possiblitiy that it is a pneumonia. Pneumonia does not always present with feve, chest pain and shortness of breath - it usually does though. See your physician, you might need a chest xray. Best wishes.
