See doctor: You don't tell us your age, or where the pain is. On the left side of what? Chest? Head? Abdomen? Pelvis? If you have persistent chest pain on coughing or sneezing, see a doctor. Possibilities range from trivial (strained muscle) to annoying (fractured rib) to life-threatening (malignancy in rib or pleura). ...Read more

Your sore ribs are probably from coughing so much, but you need to see whether it's an upper respiratory infection, or something more severe needing a chest xray.

I have a bad pain on left side right below ribs.its just a ache but extremely hurts when i cough.what could it be?will it go away without goin to doctor?
Could be many things: It's hard to know exactly where the pain is coming from without an exam... could be from your intestines or other internal organs, could be a muscle spasm, could be your lungs.
