Me! I have chest congestion, pain, cough, sore throat, the whole thing. I have no idea how I got sick, especially with all the detoxing I've been doing.

I took 1 Zithromax from a ZPack but it's just too hard on my stomach. After cramping for an hour, I decided I wasn't taking another one. So, I'm taking Mucinex, drinking orange juice, and eating soup, hoping it will go away soon!

Any tips or tricks to getting rid of this quickly?

Lots of water & rest are the most important things to do.  Also, my Mom likes to drink hot lemon juice (fresh-squeezed, mixed with hot water, stir in some honey or maple syrup) - she finds that it helps break up the congestion.

I've used homeopathic remedies when sick - Bryonia is a good one for chest congestion/bronchitis, so you might want to check with your doctor if it is ok for you to try some homeopathic stuff. There are also bronchitis combination remedies that may be helpful...

http://www.truestarhealth.com/Notes/2202000.html gives instructions for use and also lists some other homeopathic remedies for bronchitis and gives symptoms that the remedies should help relieve.

Fenugreek tea can also help keep mucus thin so it is easier to get rid of, but may have drug interactions (check with your pharmacist). I hope this is helpful - take care & I hope you feel better soon,
