Hard to say.: Your current symptoms may not be related. It's hard to say. How do you know you inhaled a lot of water, instead of just swallowing it? Inhaling a lot of water is the definition of drowning! So if you just swallowed a lot, probably not related. You may have a cold. See doc if no better soon.
