Major pain and problems breathing, coughing and sneezing -

This answer was rated:

Major pain and problems breathing, coughing and sneezing - upper right - chest and right under arm pit and to the side of breast
How long has this been going on?

Is this new?

If so..go right to the ER
Heart problems, lung clot, pneumonia, all are possible.

Heart disease is underdiagnosed in women, and very dangerous.

It can be viral illness, but if bacterial this needs antibiotics [pneumonia].

Only an exam and EKG can narrow this down.

What you describe appears to be more than a common cold.
