I am suffering from dry cough for the last 7 years & I have chest pain whenever I cough hard. Can you suggest me what should be done now?

Cough since 7 years should not be neglected. Smoking and tuberculosis are the most common reasons which should be considered. Consult a physician who will advise you tests like x ray chest to determine the cause. You should do warm saline gargles twice a day.
