Dr. Aaron Milstone answered:

What can someone do for a bad cough with chest pain?

Antitussives

Antihistamines
The best relief from cough is prescription medication. Usually this comes in two main forms 1) non-narcotic 2) narcotic. Most of the non narcotic forms use antihistamines or affect the cough receptors themselves (ie benzonoate). Narcotic cough medications usually contain either codeine or a synthetic codeine (like hydrocodone)

Go to the ER

Chest_pressure
Pericarditis, Pleurisy, Pneumonia, and Pulmonary embolism are the serious causes. Intercostal neuralgia, myofascial syndrome, costochondritis, and fibromyalgia are the less serious causes. Unless you know which one you have, you ought to go to the ER.

Severe pain whilst breathing in shoulders, neck and arm hurt and really bad chest pain?

Time to see doctor

Breathing
A person with "severe pain" and "really bad chest pain" should see the doctor right away. If her own doctor is not immediately available for help, the wisest thing to do is call 911. The paramedics have oxygen, medications, and can do an EKG. The E.R. doctor can evaluate for a possible heart attack. Even if it is not a heart attack, the E.R. usually can provide diagnosis and treatment.

Upper left chest pain and shoulder pain what could be causing it it hurts severely to cough or sneeze?

see below

Chest
You describe pleurisy or pericarditis. Sometimes intercostal muscular pain can mimic this. If the pain is worse lying down, improved sitting up/forward, it suggest pericarditis. If you have fever/cough, shortness of breath, it suggests pneumonia with pleural involvement. Were your chest xray and CT done recently/for this illness? A CXR, CBC and echo are usual parts of the evaluation.
