Customer Question
I have had this...

I have had this cough for months now, yes I smoke but it's different, and I thought it was because I had an urinary infection. Now it has moved (the pain) from my right side to my left I use a pillow for the pain when I cough I think I bruised my ribs should I just need to wait to heal. My level of pain is 2 when I breath normal but when I cough it's like 15 then after a few seconds it goes back to maybe 4 after a minute it's back to a 2 and I'm not taking anything for it.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

When I cough but I am on disability because of a back injury

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My L4 and 5 are injured plus major siatica but this just started

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
