Hi Lydia,

First of all, stop getting sick okay?

You might have bronchitis? I'm not 100% sure but you have the same type of symptoms I had when I had it. I know you said you can't get in to see your doctor, but can you go to urgent care or the emergency department? You should try and get antibiotics since you now have a couple things wrong with you

Feel better
Brittany

Our waiting times are usually that long

Are you able to go to a different one?

Definitely see a doctor. Even if you have to wait, make an appointment. It's possible something you had could turn into pneumonia which you don't want to leave untreated. If you have moderate to severe chest pain or feel you can't breathe, I'd go to A&E.
