the most likely causes of your pain would be PLEURISY or COTOCHONDRITIS and both are treated the same way... anti inflammatory meds like motrin. both should resolve within a week or two especially as your cough subsides.
a CT will cinch the deal for you. you do not have a PE by any risk factor criteria and when you add in the labs and studies already done it is just vanishingly unlikely.
