Injured rib

You may have injured ribs, in addition to muscle soreness. Severe coughing may cause this. You will want to get x-rays ASAP to make a better diagnosis.

My rib hurts after a coughing fit Does not hurt to touch Hurts when coughing or sneezing?

coughing

It is rare, but possible to crack a rib with severe coughing. Okay to get a Chest x-ray. Okay to get evaluated for chronic sinusitis as a cause of your cough. Good luck.

I've been coughing too much that my left side of the body near the bottom of the rib cage hurts. Is this something of a concern?

Not usually

Pain in that location after coughing is usually caused by a strain of the muscles and ligaments used to generate a forceful expiration - i.e. a cough or sneeze. It will usually resolve in a few days with anti-inflammatory medications. If the pain should become unbearable or be accompanied by fever, bloody sputum, or significant shortness of breath you should be checked by a doctor.

I have a bad cough from being sick im.not sick now just a cough n now when i cough or not cough i have a pain in my right upper rib area:/?

Bronchitis

A cough that persists after a cold is often bronchitis or inflammation of the bronchioles/small tubes in the lungs. The soreness you feel with coughing can be caused by that inflammation or by a small pulled rib muscle. However, shortness of breath, fever, wheezing, or symptoms lasting more than a few days can require urgent medical attention.

Pain on left an right of rib cage but hurts bad on right side when I cough and hot sweats?

Hard to say

Respiratory infections such as a pneumonia can cause similar symptoms. If it does not get better, you should probably be checked. Thank you for your question.
