I've had a pretty bad head cold for a few days now, and the cough I've had is making my chest hurt. Its painful to take deep breaths. Do you think this is just a cold with a bad cough or something more serious? I've never had chest pain when I've had previous colds with coughs. Also one of my lymph nodes in my neck is swollen if that helps any. I just want to know if I'll ever get better!!!
