i got in a car accident 45mph into a telephone pole and i have intense short sharp pains with the slightest cough that radiates into my arms and just the whole upper body sometimes. also when i laugh it hurts in my chest real bad. it doesnt hurt with normal breathing or deep breathing though is it possible this is more then just a bruised up chest, should i get this checked out?

An accident at 45 miles an hour is plenty fast enough to cause problems. Your pain may be due to a broken or fractured rib or some bruised muscles.
I'd recommend you see a doctor to have this checked out.
