Hello, I am a 22 year old male. Two nights ago I became very sick with diarrhea, vomiting, and dizziness. I could not keep an ice chip down for that night, but the next day I was able to drink. Today however, I'm feeling quite a bit better (still with a slight fever,) but my chest feels extremely heavy. Taking deep breaths is painful throughout my chest, neck, shoulders, back, but is not accompanied by coughing and clearing my throat produces nothing.

I am currently unemployed, or I would visit a doctor immediately. I have only been smoking for about 5 years, and I'm planning on quitting now.

Thank you in advance for your help,
