This morning it only hurt when i took deep breaths. now it doesn't hurt but i am afraid to do exercise, should i try to exercise? should do to the doctor?
It is probably important to follow up with your primary care physician. It does sound like acute bronchitis or upper respiratory infection. With any illness, it is important to rest, drink lots of fluids and treat fever with Ibuprofen or tylenol. The PCP will decide if a cxr or sputum sample is necessary rule out if any pneumonia and type. Good luck.
