Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Is it on one side or both?

Any other symptom?

Typing is fine thanks

Breathing is steady at the minute

There are two main possibilities

Either it is a pleuritic chest pain due to inflamed pleura

Or it could be due to the the repeated coughing that your chest muscles are feeling sore

You can take Paracetamol to help relieve the pain
