Hi,

Possibly it's bronchitis with your current symptoms.

Bile aspiration can cause aspiration pneumonia.

X-ray/CT scan chest can be helpful to screen condition.

So you should see your doctor for a clinical exam and antibiotics can be prescribed accordingly.

For cough,you can do saline gargles and try Mucinex DM.

If pain is severe then visit ER.
