I assume you are talking about pains in the chest?
If so, pneumonia and other serious problems need to be ruled out now.
If you mean abdomen, this needs and exam as it can be from many causes.
I would get examined now, pain from cough is often either muscular, or a serious problem.

Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Your symptoms do not suggest anything serious.
Ribcage cartilage pulling from coughing or sneezing is the likely cause of your symptoms.
The muscles of the ribcage are used forcefully while coughing or sneezing.
Anti inflammatory medications like ibuprofen should help with the recovery.
You should check with your doctor also.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/
