Good : Good evening. You sound like you are feeling really miserable. Although this could be a virus, you might also have pneumonia.

Wheezing is not a symptom to dismiss and may be a sign of something more going on, a respiratory infection or an asthmatic response. Best to have md consulted. Good luck. ...Read more

If you are coughing up thick dark phlegm or still have a fever of 100.4 (38c) or higher after a week from initial onset then you should see a doctor. Otherwise just give it time. ...Read more
