Sore ribs 2 months after upper respiratory infection

I had 2 lots of antibiotics for an upper respiratory infection about seven weeks ago. Since then I have rib pain .I am almost sure its muscular from coughing. I still have a tickling cough at least twice a day and my voice goes hoarse.i had a hoarse voice before which I know was the scleroderma but that settled. The gp doesn't seem to make much of it and said my chest was clear. Has anyone experienced similar and could this be chostochondritis

It could be costochondritis, you should be able to put your finger on the tender point (s) if it is. It can take a long time to settle.
