I am feeling feverish and have a bad cough with slight pain

This answer was rated:

I am feeling feverish and have a bad cough with slight pain on the right side of my chest when I cough.. The fever and cough started last week on Thursday, the sore chest this afternoon. I was unable to make an emergency appointment at my GP today
Assistant: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?
Customer: No not had this before at all. No shortness of breath.
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: There isn't anything really. I had a really bad cold with earache over Christmas and New Year and had just come right with that. I took antibiotics to clear it.

Thank you.

It sounds like a muscle spasm due to continuous coughing. I would recommend taking Advil, applying capsaicin cream and hot compresses over the area. Steam inhalation with menthol drops would help. Robitussin syrup would reduce a cough.
