If you are at increased risk of a heart attack: high bp, cholesterol, diabetes, smoker, family history, or prior history of artery disease, don't assume it's normal. Get checked. ...Read more

Airway spasm: Cold air can induce bronchial constriction which can manifest as a cough or wheezing. Your pain may simply be from the rib cage if your cough is forceful.
