I have been coughing for 2 weeks.No common cold.Mucous is thin. Today experiencing chest pain on left side.Bronchitis or pnemonia?No fever

Musculoskeletal pain: Coughing persistently can result in musculoskeletal chest discomfort due to muscle strain, cartilage inflammation, bone bruise or even fracture. This pain will resolve once the cough resolves. Without fever or discolored sputum, the cough is unlikely to be due to infection. Bronchospasm, gerd, post-nasal drip or a combination of these is more likely. See your doctor for diagnosis/treatment. ...Read more

If any new symptoms, go to urgent care for chest xray & exam. ...Read more

I've been sick with the common cold for about 3 days now but lately I've been having chest pains that spreads down my ribs....could it be lung cancer?

Not lung cancer.: Chest pains with a cold are very common. It could be as simple as rib pain from coughing too much, or more complex if the cold progressed to become a pneumonia lung infection. If you have a persistent fever or if you're not getting better very soon, then you should see your doctor for a check up to make sure everything is OK. ...Read more

Can cough, greenish yellow phlegm/mucus and head/ear congestion persist for awhile after a viral URI? Feel better except for these things. No fever.

Maybe: without an exam, I can only give general information, but classically after an inflammatory process in the upper respiratory area, the body is more susceptible to secondary infection with whatever germs are there. Strep and mouth germs are the most common causes and these often require antibiotics. ...Read more
