Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
it could be bronchitis along with sinusitis sinus infection
you could have a viral or bacteral throat infection.
you could even have a pneumonia or influenza viral infection
you should see a doctor right away and get a chest xray and sputum and throat culture to check for bacterial infections.
you might need a course of antibiotics if findings show a bacterial infection.
you might need tamiflu if you are found to have an influenza viral infection.
you can see a doctor at the urgent care center or ER
do you have a doctor you can see who can check you over and order some tests for you?
