I recently had bronchitis and have a lingering cough . On Friday night during a couching fit I had a sharp pain on the side of my right rib cage. It has been sore ever sense. It hurts when I cough, sneeze , twist or lift something heavy. It also hurts to lay on that side. When I cough I have to hold my side to ease the pain. Should I go to the doctor?

Try Home Remedies for Bronchitis
1. Drinking a glass of milk with turmeric powder everyday is one of the most effective home remedies for bronchitis. Add half teaspoon turmeric powder to a glass of milk and drink it two to three times a day. For better results it should be taken on empty stomach early in the morning.
2. Onion is a very effective home remedy as it can get rid of phlegm. Raw onion juice can not only remove the phlegm from the body but also stops further formation. It is advisable to take a teaspoon of onion juice early in the morning.
3. Drinking this spinach water can effectively relieve the sufferer from the phlegm related conditions in bronchitis. Add fresh spinach leaves to 250 ml of water and mix one teaspoon of honey and a pinch of ammonium chloride. Allow it to blend properly for some time. This juice is another home remedy to treat bronchitis.
4. Make a mixture of the powder of almonds and a cup of orange juice. Take it at bed time for getting fast relief from cough as well as phlegm. You can also use lemon juice with almond powder.
