20 female, no medical problems. And yes I do
You probably have a chest cold...bronchitis. This isn’t your heart. And yes coughing can cause sore muscles. Things you can do are drink lots of fluids, stop smoking, buy cough medicine at a pharmacy and add honey to tea. Honey has been shown to decrease coughing. If this doesn’t work then you need to see a doctor and get antibiotics and inhaler
