Chest Sprain???

Hi,

I was dianosed with chest sprain caused by a cough about 5 weeks ago, I have seen 2 other doctors who confirmed the diagnosis, although one thought I may have fractured a rib as well. I think there is something else going on, possibly pluracy. What do you think?

Background:
I had a cough about two weeks before my symptoms started. It was chesty for about a week, but had virtually gone when the symptoms started.

Original symptoms:
The pain started as a heavy weight on my shoulders. Over the next 4 days it spread down my back and around my ribcage.
Ribcage sensitive to touch (but not painful in most areas)
Burning or freezing sensation on the inside of the ribcage
Stabbing pains, particularly in the shoulders and bottom of the ribcage
Feeling as if there is a cord that has been tightened around the bottom of the ribcage
fatigue

Symptoms developed three weeks in:
Pain extending down the the arms and into the hips
General feeling of aching and stiffness
Pain in the joints

Been on ibuprofen & codine, then diclofenac sodium, now naproxen.

Thanks
