Re: Ribs hurt when I cough, is this pneumonia?

Hi, I have just got over a severe chest infection and had exactly the same as you, my rigs and my back hurt, so i asked the Dr when i went to see her. she said it is just pulled muscles where i keep coughing, and she was right, as soon as i stopped coughing my ribs and back stopped hurting within 24 hrs.
I am not a dr or anything, so if it got worse you should always get proffessional advice.
