Cough spams and when I cough it takes my breath and hurts in my left side of my chest. Acid reflux was told to me and I do get it sometimes.

In brief: Cough and chest pain

acid reflux can cause both cough and chest pain but there are other conditions that can cause these symptoms such as Emphysema, asthma, cardiac disease or valvular heart problems.
Given that you are over 50 yrs old, I would see your doctor about your symptoms to try to determine the cause
