acute bronchitis, or something else?


I'm 41 year old male, no health problems, don't smoke, etc.

Since Thursday/Friday, I've been feeling really crummy...and all my symptoms point to acute bronchitis. I've had phlegm with coughing (phlegm colour: yellow), a bit of a rattle in my chest when breathing, slight shortness of breath, achyness, fatigue, headache, possibly mild fever. I'm not sneezing, no runny nose at all, etc. Feels like a classic "chest cold", and a doozy at that. There's been no change since Friday...feels exactly the same today (Monday).

The only thing that's a little worrying to me is that it's a bit painful to swallow. The area that's painful is sort of in back of my throat on the right side, as if a gland is swollen (although to be honest I can't really feel anything swollen there with my hands). My throat isn't actually sore; it's just painful to swallow. Is pain swallowing an indicator of pneumonia or something else going on? That's my fear at this point.
