In brief: Need evaluation...
You need to be evaluated asap to determine the etiology of your symptoms and to be treated.

I agree that you need to be evaluated soon. If you have the flu, adding Tamiflu to your medications will help you to recover more quickly.

In brief: Low immunity
Sle is an auto-immune disorder, it decreases the immunity in the body with increased incidence of infections and decreases the ability to fight bacteria, on the other hand bronchial asthma is an allergic disorder associated with trapping air inside lungs and with accumulation of mucus , the combination of sle and asthma increases the possibility of respiratory infections.
