Brief Answer:
yes can be muscle pain

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thank you for your question.

The pain came after period of coughing and it is improving now with no other stomach symptoms.

I believe it is muscular.

Try to take simple pain killers (analgesia) for few days, if it doesn't settle then see your doctor.
