Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic. I can understand your concern. In my opinion, we should rule out post infectious bronchitis in your case. Bronchitis is inflammation of airways. It is common after viral upper respiratory tract infection. And it can cause cough, chest congestion, chest tightness, chest pain etc. So better to consult pulmonologist and get done 1. Clinical examination of respiratory system 2. PFT (pulmonary function test). PFT will not only diagnose bronchitis but it will also tell you about severity of the disease. And treatment is based on severity only. You may need inhaled bronchodilator and inhaled corticosteroids (ICS). If PFT is normal then simple musculoskeletal pain due to coughing can be the cause for your chest pain. So apply warm water pad on affected areas and take painkiller like ibuprofen. Don t worry, you will be alright but first rule out bronchitis. Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
