I have similar, but seems I am coughing less now after about four weeks. My cough is not a problem at night, but as soon as I get up it starts.

My flem is also dark grey. I don't smoke. I feel tired most of the time, especially after the slightest exercise and lost about 4kg since the start.

I took antibiotics but to no use. My doctor thinks its asthma as the slight wheezing is coming from the top of the lungs. Do you live in a polluted area?

From my own search of the internet, it could also be a back drip sinus viral infection where by the sinus is excreting and its falling downwards into the lung. My nose also began to be slightly blocked most of the time about two weeks into the cough. Of course the lung infection could also be caused by a virus rendering the antibiotics useless.

Dark grey flem is also a symptom of TB which depending on your immunity during child hood results in a different degrees of symptoms for each person. Some people don't need to have a fever or the night sweats for TB, however, after about 6months you will cough up blood.
