Hello you need to see a doctor for this problem. The possibilities include pneumonia, bronchitis or a mixture of both. The pain comes from inflammation in the coverings of the lung, called pleuritis or pleurisy. You need an examination, a doctor to listen to your breathing, to see if you have "consolidation" or changes to suggest pneumonia, and to consider a chest X ray to see where the problem is in your lungs. Lobar pneumonias can be bacterial, or viral, but you could have other infections, even tuberculosis, or fungal infections if this has been going on for longer than 3 days. If you have a fever and these symptoms, and your lungs do not sound good, you need antibiotics to fix the problem Please get back to me with questions, and I will reply.
