Have medical questions? Ask a doctor online!
Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. I am reviewing your question and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Do you have a runny nose, fluid trickling in throat, etc?
Please reply here.
Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. You are most likely suffering from a chest infection and yes this can be pneumonia. The chest pain is muscular as chest muscles go into spasm after coughing. You should see your doctor or go to A & E because you will need antibiotics and/or steroids to get rid of this but I reassure you that there is nothing serious like corona because in that case there has to be a fever so don't stress yourself. Lastly, you can take over the counter available tablet Aleve 500 mg twice daily for the pain. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. A 5-star rating is requested and will be appreciated. Regards
