Even though you feel better than when you had the flu, you might be coming down with pneumonia. It could also be an infection of the lungs. See your doctor soon, he'll know what's wrong with you.

It could be bronchitis or even asthma. You should defiantly go to the doctor before it gets worse.

Sounds like a respiratory infection. Is the mucous u cough up darkish , cloudy maybe greenish?if so then an infection is likely. Seems from your description u are wheezing which is another indication. Maybe bronchitis which means u have to get on a course of antibiotics like azythromycin. Sorry if u don't have the money but if u don't go to Dr. U risk the infection getting worse to maybe pneumonia. Make an appointment asap

Sounds like when I had bronchitis. The shaky breath was an issue. Go to the doctor, they'll give you antibiotics and send you home with orders to rest. I suggest afterwards rarely leaving bed whether you sleep or not. Just watch TV or play video games, or something not stressful. Maybe read.
