Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query

I'm Dr Sudhir Kumar
I have gone through your query and understand your concern.It is most likely muscular pain. It may related to overexertion and also worsens on coughing and sneezing. Treatment of it is rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Vitamin B and C is helpful in recovery. You can further investigate by x ray chest.

You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
