Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.
You want to know the cause of the symptoms that you experience.
Inflammation of the windpipe is characterized by coughing, chest pain and increased body pressure. This condition can be accompanied with a sore throat or hoarse voice. There is another medical condition--a goiter--which, if it is pressing over the windpipe, may cause pain or choking.
Given the data that you described, you may experience one of the conditions listed above. See an endocrinologist to exclude possible goiter.
Please keep in mind that I provide medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact your doctor for further advice and information about diagnosis and treatment options.
