Why am I now having pain right in the center of my breast bone when I cough?

I have been noticing for several months now, when I cough, I have pain right in the center of my breast bone. Just for the initial cough or so, if I continue to cough it is not as bad. Is this anything to do with COPD and it's related problems. Had a CT in Feb., and it showed no change in nodules from the past one. My PFT has me in the moderate stage of COPD. Could this pain/soreness be coming from the COPD in general?

When I had the same pain you are talking about I was coming down sick. I'd have a dr. check myself.

Botox

Good morning everyone
It's been a while since I been on here.
But, my question is... Can I get Botox injections between my eyes?
I have like the #11 between my eyes and I don't feel confident.
I also have COPD. Would it bother my breathing? Because I read it bothers with asthma.
