You may have pneumonia so an X ray chest is required. Also there may be poor blood oxygen saturation so the symptoms of dizziness, headache etc so O2 inhalation may relieve the symptoms. Please try clearing upper airways by using upside down posture like lying on tummy and keeping head low toward floor, esp when having bout of cough.

Good luck.
