Should I go to doctors or just wait it out

Since Friday I have been in bed with headache stuffy nose coughs sore throat my lungs feel tight and if I do get up I get out of breath really fast and it's difficult to breath I have picked up alittle but still have the tight sore chest and throat and cough. Is it just flu I have never had it before or should I go to the doctors? Or any advise on what to do take would be appreciated. Xx

I'd pop to the docs. My MIL had pretty much same symptoms as you and she thought it was the flu but after it didn't go for 2 weeks she went docs and turned out it was laringitus x

As soon as it effects your breathing it's time to go. I had H1N1 a few years ago and wound up with pneumonia, 40% use of 1 lung and 60 of the other. They were filling up with fluid. I was crawling to the bathroom it was horrible.
