Muscle spasm: Most likely this pain related to a muscle spasm, caused by straining when you were coughing, put some heat on the area, take motrin, if no help, see physical therapist in your area, or pain specialist for couple trigger point injections.

Costochondritis: You have costochondritis. This is an inflammation of the chest wall after a cold. Take Motrin 600 to 800g three times a day for a week to ten days. It should improve. Good luck.
