Iv had a bad cough for about 2 1/2 weeks now. It started out with a sore throat that disappeared after a couple of days. I was having coughing fits, particularly during the night which would regularly wake me. I am asthmatic but my asthma seems fine. I went to my college doctor, she told me I had a chest infection and put me on Klacid for 5 days, along with my inhalers. I did not improve at all. The cough began to change into a choking cough where i feel like i am choking and it is hard to catch my breath. I feel very weak and tired. Not much mucuos, a small amount but it is clear. I then went to a different GP who examined my chest, throat etc and said it all seemed fine. She put me on Erythrocin for one week, I am currently on my third day of taking it. I still feel the same. Today i have a very sore pain in my back between my shoulder blades and lower, also slight pains in my chest...Should I be worried?
