Chest infection?

What does a chest infection feel like?

My chest aches all across my upper back.

I got pain in my right shoulder & right side neck.

Breathing is a bit harder & shallower.

If I lay down my upper back doesn’t hurt & ache as much.

If I move positions it’s painful.

My heart is beating faster.

I have funky colour phlegm.

Pain on the sides of my ribs areas.

Does this sound like a chest infection or muscle pain/irritation?

See your dr tomorrow, but to me it sounds like a chest infection so get it seen to so the pain can start to ease and it doesn't get worse xx
