Right Side Of Chest Hurts When Coughing?

Cough is one of the most common complaints of the respiratory system, especially in daily health services. However, coughing can be caused by mild to serious problems. Coughing that lasts for a long time or goes on hard, usually can cause chest pain due to muscle cramps that occur when the muscles contract during the coughing process. Cough can occur without phlegm or with phlegm. This phlegm is produced by the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract which usually increases in production when there is an inflammatory reaction or an allergic reaction. Sometimes this phlegm mixes with the resulting "war" between bacteria and white blood cells, and greenish phlegm is formed. As the cough improves, the phlegm will generally subside. To make it easier to expel phlegm, doctors usually prescribe a phlegm thinner as well as a phlegm breaker so that the phlegm is not too thick to expel. The most important thing for you is to stop smoking cigarettes, increase endurance by consuming nutritious food and meeting the need for 8 hours of sleep per day, and last but not least, consuming 2-3 liters of fluid per day. If the condition does not improve, do not hesitate to consult a doctor. Here we attach an article about coughs. May be useful.
