Re: Ribs Hurt when I cough..

I would recommend going to the doctor. I had the flu and it turned into the symptoms you are describing. I went into the doctor and it was bronchitis. The z-pac helped, but I am still dealing with a painful cough 17 days later.....The doctor could prescribe some cough syrup with codeine to help alleviate some of the coughing and pain....

Re: Ribs Hurt when I cough..

sounds like you have the flu. Your ribs hurt because the coughing has pulled the muscles around them. As long as you are breathing easily, you are likely ok. If it does not clear up soon, a trip to the doctor would be a good idea. Or, if it gets worse, go to the doctor or ER right away. There is a nasty virus where the cough hangs on for weeks. But it could also be the swine flu. try to rest a lot.
