Possibilities...: If you have a cough that is present for days to weeks, you may have musculoskeletal chest discomfort. This is the likely etiology if the discomfort is worse when coughing or taking a deep breath. If the chest pain is present all the time and does not get worse when coughing or deep breathing, then go to the nearest er today to r/o cardiac cause.
