I have a cold and have been coughing a lot, sneezing, blowing my nose and my upper abdomen has been sore, tender to the touch how long can this last?

In brief: Up to a week

Go see your doctor if going on for more than a week.
Sooner if symptoms worsen. Most colds resolve in a few days to a week. I'm assuming the abd pain is from coughing, but have that checked out if it worsens or doesn't get immediately worse with cough for a second (as the abd muscles contract with cough or sneeze).
