Just finished 7 days of cephlex 500mg 3x day, for strep/tonsilitis. Now I have shortness of breath and chest pain, coughing up mucus. Go back to doc?

In brief: Yes

Sounds like acute bronchitis.

Tonsillitis does not cause chest pain or short ness of breath. Coughing up mucus is a symptom of acute bronchitis
