Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Most likely muscle twitching related pain.

Right sided pain is not usually heart related.

heart related pain comes with exercises and goes away with rest.

Heart related pain does not respond to ibuprofen or any pain killers easily.

So likely not serious.

Viral infection does not respond to antibiotics.

Only bacterial infection should respond to antibiotics.

You should boost your immune system by taking vitamin C 500 mg daily, Ecchinacea supplements, Astragalus 50 mg daily.

Please avoid daily nasal irrigation as that can irritate the sinus mucosa to produce more secretions.

You can take a decongestant like Sudafed ( pseudoephedrine) 2 tabs 2-3 times daily to help to dry out secretions.
