Thanks for writing in.

An infection in the lungs or narrowing of airways can result in difficulty breathing, which results in a feeling of chest tightness accompanied by a cough.

Treatment :-
Bed rest, drinking plenty of water and hot drinks such as herbal teas are often the best treatments for speeding recovery from chest pain.

Albuterol inhalation, either with a hand held device or nebulizer will help dilate the bronchial tubes.

Short-term steroid therapy will help minimize inflammation within the bronchial tubes.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
With these set of symptoms , you probably have exaceberation of asthma or bronchitis or pneumonia.In such case one should visit Physician and get examined.Physical examination can help in coming to a diagnosis and treatment.This could worsen and become severe ,or it could be managed on out patient basis , which depends on physical examination.
