I've had a problem for a while. On each side under the arms and on my ches, I could feel a bruise, but it doesn't show on the skin. I had the same thing happen closer to the chest, but it has gone away. I kept wondering if it was left over from the bronchitis I had early in the year, but I don't know what it is.

It's possible if you did alot of coughing that you have a hairline fracture(s) in your ribs or have bruised your lungs, I know it is possible to break your ribs by coughing too hard. Just a thought.
