In brief: Warning

Acute pain is biologically useful; it is symptomatic and prevents a body from the future injury.
In you case the drink is too cold and you get the warning.

In brief: Needs Evaluation

You need to see a ENT (ear nose throat) doctor. They will probably look down your throat for starters.
They now have tiny scopes like spaghetti that can get a good look at what is going on. You might also need an upper GI x-ray to look at your swallowing mechanism and check for things like a hiatal hernia
