Using my considerable psychic powers I can definitely diagnose you with...

Nothing. hmm

I had similar a few weeks ago and spent 2 days in bed. Cough lingered for at least 3 weeks.

the pain in my chest and back is a burning sort of pain -if that makes sense,when i lie down feels like im gonna choke

Are you concerned it might be flu? It would be too late for you to take antivirals anyway. Whatever it is, its making you poorly and you don't need a label on it to look after yourself properly. Lots of fluids rest and don't share it with people.

If you start to feel worse, get an increasing temp etc then go back to gp as you might have a secondary infection.

Hope you feel better soon.
