Nasal congestion with common cold in a child. What can lead to back pain?

My three year old has had a common cold with nasal congestion for 4 days, and developed a mild cough two days ago. He is now complaining of pain in his back. I don t think it is related to the coughing because most of the coughing occurs at night and in the early morning. He just started mentioning the back pain after lunch today. Should i be concerned?

Hello there,

Nasal congestion and back pain apparently are not related unless it is part of some viral infection where your child would complain of vague symptoms making it difficult to find any correlation.
Do make a note where exactly the pain is coming from, from the back or from the sides of the body.
Excessive cough may lead to muscular pain.
So next time, do ask your child if the pain aggravates when he coughs.
Take care.
