Bronchitis and exhaustion

I am recovering from acute bronchitis which lasted 3 weeks in my case.It stared following a cold which I've not treated well and during which i've carried on pushing myself to work and travel. My main symptoms initially were a dry tickly,painful cough with a degree of pleurisy and pain between ribs when coughing and lying in bed.Then after a few days in addition I started having episodes of intense exhaustion and breathlessness with chills and sweating bouts sometimes.I would find it difficult to even walk a small distance outdoors.It all lasted over 4weeks gradually getting better and then relapsing sometimes too.Even though I've reached almost 5 weeks since my initial cold has started,still having coughing episodes but these are not as troublesome. It has taken me ages to recover,I reckon it's mainly beecause I have not been able to rest properly and take care of myself due to having small children and other family concerns. I never had a fever.It's been my worst illness as an adult
