Patient :I'm just getting over the cold or flu (I'm not sure which one), and I noticed a new symptom. Every time I cough, sneeze, or breathe in, a sharp pain occurs either behind my right lung or under my right shoulder blade - in that general area. It's very painful and I'm not sure if I should be alarmed by the pain or not.
Symptoms: Pain under shoulder blade/or behind lung. Barking cough.
