Yes. Most likely secondary to muscle strain or if cough is due to pneumonia, then pleuritic chest or back pain depending on part of lung involved.
Yes. A persistent cough could cause a pulled muscle in back muscles or in the muscles in between the ribs. This will definitely cause pain.
I am sick and have been having some severe coughing attacks. I was coughing and now I am having upper back pain when I breathe, cough and move.?
Coughing. You may have bronchitis or a possible asthma attack. See you doctor for a possible chest x ray.
History of intermittent dry cough for 3 mos. Underwent 2 x-rays yielded normal results. Upper back pain for more than a month. Could this be lung ca?
No. You are 32 years old, a nonsmoker and have 2 normal chest x rays so the answer is absolutely no.
Option: Chest Xray. This usually shows may be you have some problems in the lungs due to possible viral or bacterial infection. May be you want to check with chest xray.
I was coughing and now I am having upper back pain when I breathe, cough and move? Is it my back or my lungs.
Productive cough? If you are having productive sputum (cough) that's not relieved by your otc meds, it's time to see your doctor for a lung exam, (and possible chest xray) to rule out an uri, from walking pneumonia, depending on other factors /symptoms (fever, chills, etc). They may have to start you on antibiotics if warranted. Since your lungs are involved, it can affect your uppoer back if you cough a lot.
I developed a cold about 2 weeks ago and now have chest and upper back pain along with the persistent cough. Should I see a Dr. Or wait it out?
Get checked. You have waited two weeks. You have developed a persistent cough and sounds like things are not getting better. You should get checked.
Yes you should. Your cold may have turned to bronchitis or pneumonaia. Need treatment.
Upper back pain, feels like I've got a constant cramp for 3 days now. Uncontrollable coughing and pain in chest too. What should I do to stop cough?
Visit your doctor. I am concerned about you. Where you are now is manageable but would not want you to get any worse. You should go say hello and let them make some recommendations. Best of luck!
