In brief: Infection....

The elevated WBC and sed rate, in combination with your symptoms, indicates you have an infection.
The coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath indicates the infection is likely respiratory, like acute bronchitis or pneumonia. The other symptoms, like weakness, fever and chills are more general signs of infection. You need treatment so see a doctor asap!
