Brief Answer: The cause to severe pain below rib cage-coughing.. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for sharing your concern with XXXXXXX Although severe coughing is associated with pain below your rib cage and seems to be scary, however,there is nothing serious to be worried about. I'd advise to: - keep another pillow (2 in total) when sleeping to alleviate coughing - drink plenty of water - apply local balm for cold - inhale warm steam or saline through aerosol therapy - take linden tea with lemon Wish fast recovery! Dr.Alba Feel free to ask me other questions you might have!
