    Coughing regularly can itself cause back pain. "Smoker's cough" for instance is often associated with back pain caused by muscle strain. If you're not a smoker and you're still coughing alot then you could have some lung issues and you should see a doctor for that.  Pain when you breathe in can also be associated with some heart issues. All in all you should get this checked by a doctor. Good luck!

    Do you have a cold or respiratory infections? Coughing can jar your body and make you hurt all over. It is similar to being slammed against a wall.

     

    Are you taking any medication? I would check to see if a cough is a side effect. I know Lisinopril (blood pressure medication) can cause a dry cough. I like to use Drug.com to check for side effects. They have a professional handout that list all the side effects, even it is rare. 

     

    See your doctor; this could be a serious matter or something as simple as changing a medication, but you have to see the doctor to find out.
