Cough, chest tightness and breathlessness the three symptoms mentioned by you are the triad of symptoms for Asthma. It is usually triggered by allergens. It is a disease affecting the lungs causing narrowing of the airways, usually due to an allergic reaction to triggering factors. Therapy is with bronchodilators which cause the airways to dilate. Have yourself evaluated for the same. This can be detected by a spirometry test. In the meantime take OTC acetaminophen if there is fever, try to take warm oral fluids and do steam inhalations prior to your meals. This helps to loosen up and bring out the secretions.
