Hard coughing from mucus in chest, throat feels weird now

On Saturday (about 3 days ago), I was coughing hard and bringing up some white to clear mucus after I took a syrup that's an expectorant, decongestant, and an antihistamine that my GP prescribed to me. I'm also getting over a sinus infection and just finished taking antibiotics as well. After I finished coughing hard, my throat (near my adam's apple) feels achy and feels weird when I swallow. I feel the weirdness when I'm swallowing the food and the sensation hangs around for 30 minutes or so.  My breathing is fine.  I've been drinkng hot tea to help soothe it which seems to help.  I've also got some honey throat drops that seems to help as well.  It hasn't gotten worse and a bit better.   Could have I coughed too hard and hurt my throat?  If so, when will it get better?  A week?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
