I had that same problem 2 years ago. Please have your doctor check you out.
Coughing can cause damage to the muscles and underlying tissue as it strains a lot of those fibers. IE... broken eye vessels, even some ear perforations, detached lungs from rib cages.
The soreness could be from coughing so much. Please have your dr check it out
if it get too troublesome.

It sounds like you may have pleurisy. It happens from coughing. Your lungs and chest cavity are covered with a thin membrane called pleura and coughing can rub the surfaces together causing fluid to build, almost like a blister. It is usually a sharp stabbing pain that is worse when you breathe deep, cough or sneeze. Anytime you have chest pain with cough you should see your doctor. It could indicate something more serious like pneumonia or a host of other lung ailments.
