viral infection?

Have had a bad cough for 3 weeks. Started out mild but has progressively gotten worse. I now have constant headaches (especially around the eyes), body aching all over, cold, sweating in my sleep, coughing up loads of phlegm, fatigue and lack of sleep due to the pain keeping me awake. Saw doctor twice and was recommended rest and take paracetemol.
