Hydration: Make sure you are taking in enough fluids throughout the day. Start drinking more water. Coffee and soda are not appropriate fluids because the caffeine is a diuretic.

Day 5 of being sick. Symptoms changed from sore throat to sinus pain to dry cough causing chest pain. What could it be and what should I do??
Viral process: Viruses are known to trigger bronchospasm. Given the providing symptoms, I suspect that this is a viral syndrome. If the cough is of significant discomfort and frequency, you could have your physician provide you with an albuterol inhaler or a steroid/long-acting bronchodilator. Generally it will settle down over a few days on its own, providing you don't have any underlying probs. Take care. ...Read more

For neuralgia, try TYLENOL (acetaminophen). I feel that these symptoms will resolve without any specific treatment but see your Physician if they persist. ...Read more

Esophagus is a continuation of throat and it does go through the chest, so if it is in spasm you could also have related chest pain. However, this is not a safe way to learn what is actually happening to you. You should discuss this & all associated symptoms with clinician. ...Read more
