Short of breath, viral invection, dizzy spells, trouble coughing

Patient : Hi, i had a cough for around 2 weeks which caused me no pain or comfortless any way. However,a week ago i started getting symptoms of a cold i.e runny nose, chesty cough ect. The past 4-5 days i've been waking up really short of breath with dizzyness and ended up in hospital ( i noticed that i had trouble trying to cough and i mainly get short of breath after i coughed), they said it was a viral infection and gave me antibiotics. This was 3 days ago and i still feel the same. I can just about walk up the stairs before i go dizzy and get breathless and last night i got really short of breath and dizzy just laying in bed. Should i go back to the hospital or docter?
