Where in the chest do you feel the pain exactly?
Thank you for all the information,The pain in chest can be due to different factors, including heart.As the pain is increased on breathing then it can be due to infection of lungs or pleura.Sometimes, muscle pull or strain can be increased with breathing but it is usually not so high up.Costochondritis of the ribs can cause it.As you have cough, it is likely to be from chest infection or inflammation.I would advise to get an examination by doctor.Depending on your other symptoms, health issues, you may need a few tests.EKG, chest X ray, blood tests can be required.You can take tylenol, meanwhile.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
