Bronchitis, constent cough, fever, not going away!

I went to my Dovtor on Saturday, with symptoms mostly concerning my chest pain and difficulty breathing, he diagnosed me with bronchitis and prescribed antibiotics as well as some medication for the symtoms. He also said that I would probably star flu symtoms which I did. It's now Tuesday and although it hasn't been that long I haven't been feeling any better at all. In fact I feel worse, my chest is tight and I'm still haveing trouble breathing, when I breath it really hurts and I have these coughing fits where I almost throw up from not being able to breath. Then I have a cold sweat the one minute and the next I am so hot I can't stand it. My Doctor isn't in for the week and I don't really feel comfortable with anyone else. Do you think I can wait this out? Please help!

Dear B
I think you should go back to a doctor - ask around and maybe visit a good doctor that one of your friends know well just to check up on you - I don't want you to get pneumonia.
