Why does my chest hurt when I cough or sneeze?

Muscle pain

Allergic_rhinitis
These activities of coughing and/or sneezing require muscle contractions. If prolonged the muscles of the chest may hurt. This is not a serious problem. The main question to be answered is what is the cause of the cough and sneeze. Allergy is a good possibility.

Dr. John Garner answered:

Why does my right side chest hurt when I cough?

A few options

Chest_pain
Pleurisy, rib cartilage sprain (from really severe coughing), muscle injury (again from all the coughing). Usually one of those. Other options include complications of pneumonia and infection or inflammation of the heart lining.

you should go to ER and get yourself checked. there are different reasons that can cause chest pain and cough- however, I think you should be evaluated as soon as possible. Go to ER.

Dr. Bennett Werner answered:

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.
