Bronchitis: When you are coughing up colored sputum you have a bacterial infection and you need antibiotics. The chest pain is probably a bronchitis that will respond to antibiotics nicely.

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
I've been sick for a few days when i sneeze or cough I have a dull ache that starts in the middle of my back and radiates down my arm, should I worry?
Not yet: Your symptoms are concerning for a herniated disc. The warning signs of a significant problem would be arm weakness or other neurologic dysfunction. Symptoms lasting for only a few days, however, should not be too concerning to you, as there is a high chance that they could resolve on their own. ...Read more
I have been sneezing alot and every time i do a sharp pain happens in my thigh and chest every time and just recently the pain in my thigh lasted 5min?
This is very strange: and impossible to diagnose remotely. Your intra-abdominal pressure goes up every time you sneeze. If you had a lung problem it could be made worse and cause pain. If you had a spine problem (causing thigh pain) it could conceivably be made worse and cause pain. Hard to tie them both together though. If it keeps up, you should probably be seen. ...Read more
I have been go to the gym for the past month and I have never felt this pain. When I inhale, cough sneeze there is pain in the left side of my chest?
Rib pull: All the the actions you list involve movement of your chest wall muscles. I suspect you may have caused a small muscle pull. Take a break for a few days from any upper body workouts. Drink plenty of water and consider trial of ibuprofen if very uncomfortable. Consider consulting your MD for a full exam if not improved after a few days. ...Read more
My ribs have a dull pain all the time, but when i take a deep breath, i have a sharp pain in my ribs. ?
See your doctor: Rib pain in a young person can be due to exertion such as running or weight lifting. It can also be due to inflammation in your chest cartilage called 'costochondritis.' However, if it has only recently started, and you're short of breath, it can represent lung infections, pneumonia or blood clot in your lung. Please see your doctor to have it evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had a cough and cold 3 weeks I now have a pain that comes and goes in right side of my chest sometimes when I breath in or when I lift arm?
Time to see a doc: No way around it. The Internet is a great resource but it can't replace a physical exam and medical history performed by a well trained doctor. My advice is to see a family physician assonance you can. If there is shortness of breath or coughing up if bright red blood see a doctor in an emergency setting. ...Read more
I suddenly had very sharp pain in the middle of my chest when I would breathe in. There was also pain in my upper back at the same time. Thank you!
Precordial catch: This is a relatively common occurrence termed "precordial catch". The exact cause is unknown but it is felt to be when a dry spot on the lung lining sticks to the wall of the chest and the stretching when you breathe in causes the sharp pain . These are benign and will do no harm but they are dramatic. The best way to handle it is to "bite the bullet" and rapidly breathe in deeply. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In the morning, I have noticed pain in my abdomen when I stretch or cough. Sometimes I also get this same pain when I sneeze.
I had chronic bronchitis and cough for about 6 weeks... I began to get sharp stabbing pain in the right side of my back now every time I cough. Why?
Excessive Coughing: Bronchitis leads to heavy cougs to loosen the build up in the bronchial tubes. This can strain the muscles of the chest, abdomen and back and just like over-exercising any muscle, these muscles become sore. It is intense coughing often for many weeks (My recent run was 10 weeks). OTC Mucinex (guaifenesin) can help improve the results of cough & decrease need to cough since each cough is more effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Since : Since the cause of sternal and chest pain can be challenging to even the most experienced of doctors, your symptoms should be evaluated immediately. Even though you are having vomiting and pain leading one to believe it is stomach related, a medical professional must ensure that this is not heart related such as a heart attack or blood clot. If it is determined that the pain is not cardiovascuar related, further evaluation for gastritis, esophagitis, esophageal spasms, gall bladder disease, pancreatitis, and pneumonia would typically be the next step. This is not a time to guess at where your symptoms are coming from, but a time for experienced medical attention. . ...Read more

Intercostal paIn: Excessive coughing often leads to an irritation of the muscles between the ribs or the nerve innervating each rib. Both would give you sharp pain when coughing or , in severe cases, even breathing. This is called intercostal neuralgia. Treatment is either therapy with rib mobilization, or intercostal nerve block. ...Read more
When i cough, i get a sharp pain in the right side of my brain, the cough has been persistent for over 1 week. Had a bad sinus infection before then.
Not really: You cannot have a pain in your brain because the brain is completely insensitive to pain. Sinuses are outside your skull; brain is inside. And there are no sinuses on the sides of your head. Whatever the pain is, it probably has nothing to do with either your brain or your sinuses. ...Read more
