Bronchitis?

I should know this by now and I probably should see a doctor, which I will go to urgent care tomorrow if I don't feel better.

I've had a cold (I think it's been a cold) and following the cold, I've got this nasty cough. I can't sleep, I can't lay down, I pretty much can't do anything and when I start coughing, I can't stop. My head feels like it's been smashed up against the wall a million times and my neck and throat are throbbing. TMI but I keep coughing up thick green phleym and now it has some blood in it. Not a serious amount of blood but it's there and it's bright red.
I get this cough following every cold or sinus infection I get and it lasts for 2-4 weeks but I've never found it in me to take it to the doctor to see what is going on.


Does this sound like bronchitis?
