Thanks for your query.
You have not mentioned about additional drugs being taken. Some drugs (such as ramipril, enalapril
etc) for hypertension
cause dry cough
. So, it may not be exactly bronchitis
, but drug-induced cough, if you are on any of these drugs.
Further, the pain on the right side of back is possibly due to either
- spasm of the back muscles due to cough (a short course of combination of anti-inflammatory pain-killers + muscle relaxants will cure it); or
- underlying kidney problem, such as UTI.
Consult your doctor who will examine you and modify your treatment if deemed necessary.
