In brief: Bronchitis?

It is possible these symptoms are due to acute bronchitis caused by either a bacterial or viral infection.
See your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

In brief: Probably URI

These are classic and common symptoms for many viral illnesses, along with muscle soreness (myalgias), headaches and fever.
However, more info is needed to be sure a more serious infection or other process imitating URI is present. And if someone has asthma or COPD (emphysema), a tight chest can indicate less airflow.

In brief: Tight chest/ throat

Most cough with sore throat for few days are viral.
Tight chest could mean asthma or bronchospasm or simply chest pain because of coughing , so i would suggest you to see a dr. If you are asthmatic you need to use your bronchodilators. The decision to use or not antibiotics is up the treating physician when there is a question for bacterial infections.
