Motrin/mucinex-DM: Possibly pulled a muscle or that the airway is very irritated from coughing/infection..Antibiotics do need time to work--and they only kill the bacteria..Healing is done by the body which takes time. Adding some Motrin and possibly expectorant/cough suppressant such as mucinex-dm may help. Increase fluid, rest, and give your body time to heal..If worsens, call your doc..Good luck.
