Sore chest please help am little worried?
i have been coughing since monday due to a sinus infection and before that i had coughing due to my asthma. well my chest per say hurts. i believe the pain is around my sternum or breastplate area and idk what it is or what to do about it. at my doctor visit on friday they never did an xray or nothing just said sinus infection and gave me meds for it. i really think i hurt myself from all the coughing that i been doing but it still worries me a bit. i just do not want something serious to be wrong. i did have a chest wall strain before but that was on the side of body not in the sternum area. i have 3 tests this week in school so i can't take time off for it at all and 2morrow is a day off for me but has to study. everytime i lay down i usually cough and can't sleep so maybe that os why i am so sore. P.S. i saw my doc on friday and they said i had a sinus infection and i got antibiotics for it but they not helping yet
so am i sore because of all the coughing i been doing and should i get an x-ray or get the pain looked at?
