Have chest pressure, bad cough, strained, pressure in chest, pinched stomach. What can I do?

I have had a pressure on my chest for about 3 months. Before that I had a bad cough and thought I had just strained myself. I now find it hard to breath at times and the pressure on my chest and below the sternum feels like I have been punched in the stomach. Is it just something that will take time from the cough or should I go back to the doctor?

You should have complete workup for that to rule out seroius matters such as Cardiac disease. You should have thorough physical examination and chest xray to rule out the lobar pneumonia or pleural effusion and pleurisy.
It may be due to acid in the stomach that is causing acidity and symptoms of Acid peptic disease.
