I have a cold. A yicky, bad, chest cold. It’s a bit in my throat, not at all in my head, and a lot in my chest. I’ve been taking cough syrup intraveniously (OK, not really, but I wish I could!) so I’m not coughing much, but I am coughing a little.
Yesterday I started getting little sharp pains in my ribs and back. Mostly muscley type pains - they’ll come for a second then go away. This morning it’s even worse. I finally took some ibuprofin to get 'em to go away.
My guess is that they have something to do with the coughing - I must have irritated some part of my chest from hacking up lungs and such. Mr. Athena, as he is apt to do, is worried that I’m dying. Thus this thread. Am I dying? Are sharp pains in one’s back/ribs normal with chest colds?
Please answer that, and send sympathy.
