    Might be acid reflux which can cause chest pain and coughing.  Do you experience any burning sensations or acid coming up into your throat?  Try milk or OTC antacids to see if it helps the sensations you are having.

    If ir goes on longer than a week, see your doctor.

      I have somewhat similar pain but without coughing. Mine hurts my upper left stomach and feels like a punch in solar plexus. Walking and doing anything either aggravates or tightens the upper left and upper middle stomach. It feels like either a severe cramp or like getting punched.

      That’s why I was worried about as it’s not muscle or a crohn’s type of pain I usually get it’s. Deep behind my ribs centre and left side sad x

      I feel that too mine is severe but is in the upper stomach below left and middle ribcage rather than chest. Your coughing suggest you might have GERD or Hiatal Hernia or simply nothing but bunch of muscles and nerves playing up. But your coughing is a sign of either lung problem or acid reflux.
