Such kind of a stabbing pain is seen in pleurisy ideally. That is if there is a bit of effusion or fluid in the lungs or a small patch of pneumonia which must be causing the pain during deep breathing and coughing
Get an xray chest done and then see a chest physician for further ecvaluation as he will be able to guide you properly for any further treatment required
