Sick with viral respiratory infection for 2 weeks

I am having a recurrence of symptoms after viral infection.  I have been sick for 2 weeks with sore throat and a mostly non-productive cough that brings up thick green phlegm that tastes awful.  I was starting to feel better, got voice back but then my sore throat has returned.  I feel really fatigued and fuzzy headed today as well as some rib pain on the right hand side.  I was running a temp in the evening around 101* but not running one currently.  I just feel really sick all of the sudden.  

Should I be concerned about this or will it pass in time?  What could be causing the recurrence?  

I am an asthmatic with a tendency to get bronchitis and pneumonia easily.  I
