How long?: Itching is often associated with allergy. If you have had these symptoms for more than 2 weeks or they have been recurring, they are likely from allergies. Consult an allergist to find out what may be ailing you and whether you may have asthma as well. If there is a family history of allergies, then your chances of having allergies get much higher.

Had a cough all day, but now chest is tight, itchy throat, and trouble breathing. I feel weak. Anxiety from being sick or something else?

Seek treatment: You should be evaluated. If you have a respiratory infection with difficulty breathing, it could get worse and you may benefit from a breathing treatment to open the airways in the chest. Sometimes a cold with bad cough can also trigger asthma, or "twitchy" airways and can make it hard to breathe. It could be anxiety, but that should be considered after these other possibilities.
