Resolved Question:

there,
Worst case, how long can URTI last, I've been coughing (not really bad, but annoying), and feel the tickly in my throat (which has moved from the left side to the right) and now feel slight burning sensations in throat.
Doctor checked lungs, clear and said my throat was inflamed but not majorly (that was 10 days ago)
It's been 4 weeks now!!

4 weeks is too long
you should see a doctor and have an exam and xray done to make sure you don't have pneumonia or something else going on
4 weeks is way too long
