Thank you for your question,
I’mCustomerand I’ll try to help you.
I would suggest to take an examination in ER.
There can be an infection in the lungs or pneumonia, bronchoconstriction.
It is likely that the infection has gone down from sinus or upper respiratory tract to lower respiratory tract.
Heart issues need to be ruled out too.
You would need a few tests like blood count, chest X ray, EKG etc. to make a treatment plan.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

Though we can wait for a few hours with lung infections, heart issues like angina or infarct will need immediate attention.
As the symptoms got worse, I feel you need an examination asap.
