dull pain below the left breast on coughing

I had a horrible cough for almost 2 weeks and to help getting rid of my phlegm, I should have to cough it out vigorously., I went to see my doctor advised to get some rest and hydrate myself, I did, however symptoms getting worse, until I have started course of antibiotic, cough improved, but I still got phlegm coming out. I had only pain on my left side below my breast  if I will take a deep breath,cough,and if I carry heavy things. I am normal while walking, doing household,chores and sleep ok, that pain relieved slightly if I laid on my left side. I am a bit worry what causes this?

I'm glad your cough has improved after starting your antibiotics.  The left breast tenderness can be from strained muscles that are used to cough, as well as hurting when you take a deep breath/cough/carry heavy objects.  If it gets really bad, you need to be seen by your doctor to consider a pulmonary embolism but it's unlikely to be this.
