It is usually viral infection of the lower respiratory tract that give such symptoms and most of the times it is self limiting and can take up to 4 weeks for all the symptoms to disappear, specially cough goes at the end and you feel tired because of coughing. I would suggest you to inhale steam with menthol drops in it and if it persist after another week then do see a doctor for examination.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
