Brief Answer:
Yes, this could be a possibility.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for consulting us.
This could well be a pulled or strained muscle, but other possibilities must be ruled out.
Unfortunately, I am not aware of your history in detail like your age, sex, your medical history & the duration & nature of your cough etc, so, it is difficult for me to judge the relation between the two.
Other common causes of pain in this area are acute appendicitis, lymph adenitis & ectopic pregnancy in females.
I think you should see a physician to exclude all these causes by physical examination, especially if discomfort or pain is increasing & not settling with common pain killers.
I hope you are taking some treatment for your cough. Also use saline gargles & steam inhalation along with it, to reduce symptoms.
Hope I have given you some helpful information, please write back if you want to discuss this further.
Best regard.

Brief Answer:
Appendicits is not likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your reply.
If you have no pain & rebound tenderness then chances of appendicitis are next to impossible.
Relation of discomfort to posture indicate the pain is probably muscular.
This is good to know that you are healthy but remember smoking is the number one enemy of your health & is the route cause of many medical diseases & cancer. So, please give serious consideration to quitting.
You may try ordinary painkillers like paracetamol if you are not allergic to it.
If God forbid no improvement or worsening symptoms, you must visit the doctor personally, to get this evaluated.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
X-Ray of the joint & TLC count may give some help

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your question.
No, it doesn't sound like appendicitis.
May be a joint problem as weight bearing & walking is aggravating your pain.
I think you should try common pain killers like Paracetamol or Aspirin ( if you have no known problem with them) & continue with your activities. If this settles, good enough, if not, you should seek medical help. Doctor will most likely recommend you X-rays of the joint, to sort this out.
If you are very concerned about appendicitis, please go for one complete blood count as total leucocyte count (TLC) is often elevated in appendicitis, or visit a doctor to rule this out by clinical examination.
Hope I have addressed your concerns.
Wish you good health.
Take care.
