welcome to HealthcareMagic
sudden onset of sharp pain during cough needs consultation with physician and chest x ray may be advised to rule out any underlying lung pathology like pneumonitis or pleuritis
proper treatment will help early recovery

Hi, As you are having cough since one week or so, it is very likely that the pain you are experiencing may be because of the stress due to coughing. Then also please investigate yourself for chest x-ray, CBC,Esr and if needed sputum examination(if you can bring out the sputum).
Meanwhile you can take some light analgesics and antitussives.
