It sounds like your cat may have a respiratory infection. Your best option is to take your cat to see a vet as soon as you can.

It can't be pleasant for your cat if he is having difficultly breathing.

As for your question about pain, well i have a web page about cat pain which I think you will find of further help

best wishes kate
