Am I having heart problems, any Ideas ?

I ve had a cough now for about a week. Ever since the cough started, I ve been having discomfort/pain around my heart . At first it would only be painful if I breathed in past a certain point, but today it is painful anytime I cough. It s a tolerable pain, it s nothing excruciating, but I was wondering if it was a problem with my heart or maybe just something else around the left pectoral area. Any Ideas?

Hello.welcome.Your pain can't be related to your heart as the pain comes only during coughing.Heart pain will occur independent of coughing or any muscular activity.Your pain could be a muscular pain or because of pleuritis.You must visit your doctor for the proper diagnosis.good luck.
