Cough and Back Pain

I have asthma and a mild chronic cough.  When I get congested or sick and my cough worsens I have an associated pain in my left upper back.  The pain occurs when coughing and varies in intensity with severity of cough.  This has been present for 3-4 years.

Hi, probably you have developed pleuritis due to lung infection. Try, anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, diclofenac etc for 5 days. If no improvement is seen, do consult doctor for examination and investigations.

Have a nice day!
