Tonight it feels like acid reflux in my throat after I cough. Probably due to the squeezed lemon in my matcha tea?

Yes it is acid reflux and it probably is from the lemon

Lastly my blood pressure is 145/90, 83 heart rate. Could it be elevated from my illness or side effects from these meds? I will add a bonus for your additional time spent. Thank you. I am just trying to get a good night's sleep.

That's just from your illness and not feeling well and not from the meds

And nothing really serious

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
