I'm getting over laryngitis and I'm pretty sure I pulled a muscle or something because one side of my chest started to hurt when I coughed and now both sides are so sore! My boyfriend is convinced it's just because I'm coughing so hard but idk. It's so bad I can't sleep. No NSAIDs are touching the pain. Was at the doc three days ago and didn't have this pain. Do I go back to the doc or the urgent care first thing tomorrow or give it a day? It's brutal.

I've had that before and you're right. It is so painful! Are you feeling any better now? If so and if it ever happens again, you should go to urgent care for muscle relaxers and Tessalon pearls for coughing. Also a heating pad works well.
