Thumbs down Cough for a week

I have had a cough now for about a week, bit unsure about going to the doctors because last time i went to the doctors they said there was nothing wrong.

the last few days i've had a severe cough, fever, chill, ear ache and palpitations, shortness of breath, light headiness, tight chest, chest pain

palpitations carry on each day (5-6 times)

it is getting on my bloody nerves, what do you guys suggest??

please help

thank you

Re: Cough for a week

If you are coughing up Green Phlem then you should see your Dr as you could have an infection, the same goes for chest pain and difficulty breathing. You may need a course of Antibiotics.
Apart from the usual medications for colds they will take their course and a cough can last for a number of weeks.
Boil a chopped up lemon and add some honey to taste. I like milk with a spoon of honey as well.
Hope you soon feel better,
