I coughed very hard one day and had severe pain on my right side. I went to the emergency room and he diagnosed it as chest wall pain. It has been 6 weeks and the last week I get sharp piercing pain when I lay down on my right side. It is painful to get up. I also seem to have a dry cough which is more in the evening. During the day my ribs don't hurt when I move around but I do get a certain amount of chest pain. Not every day but some. Could this be a bruised or cracked rib.
