Severe cold and sore throat, uncontrollable fits of hacking causing soreness in neck and shoulder muscles. Cause?

I ve recently come down with a mild-to-severe cold that s given me a VERY sore/agitated throat , as if I ran sand paper over it repeatedly. It s progressed to the point where I will frequently have uncontrollable fits of hacking/coughing, and when doing so it causes the muscles in my neck and shoulders to seize up and get very sore, very similar to the residual aches/pains from a muscle cramp . This is very new to me, what s going on?

you are suffering from upper respiratory tract infection.normally cold is due to a viral infection and subsides within 3-4 days but sometimes secondary bacterial infection sets in and course of disease gets prolonged and severe.

A course of antibiotics,and bronchodilator syrups will help in releiving cough.Once the coughing subsides your muscle cramps will go away fast.My advice is to visit an ENT specialist and get yourself examined for fast relief.Hope this will help you!
