Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
You havent mentioned your age, sex, medical conditions , and presence of fever or any other symptoms.
Green colored phlegm indicated presense of bacterial infection. So see a doctor and take the required medicines and also undergo investigations like a chest x-ray and a blood count, to rule out other possibilities.
A chronic cough like yours can cause pain & palpatation. Even a cardiac illness like pericarditis. So please see a doctor personally.

1. Drink warm water 3-4 glasses/day.
2. Avoid Cold drinks/alcohol.
3. Avoid over exertion.

Please mention details.
You need to do some investigations like chest X ray-PA, CBC, ESR, Sputum for AFB. Better consult some physician at the earliest.
