About 4 weeks since I was diagnosed with bronchitis. The cough is bad, makes my chest hurt and is continuous. SOB, muscle pain, fatigue and feel terrible. On inhaler and virtussin. When does this become a problem? Do I need a pulmonologist yet?

In brief: Mgt

If you have a fever, pneumonia may contribute to the symptoms.

A low dose of steroid, may help to reduce lung inflammation following a bronchitic infection. Most are viral illnesses, but I would recommend seeing your PCP.
