In brief: Yes.
But it could also be a sign of complications such as pneumonia, pleurisy, or pneumothorax.

In brief: Yes...
Coughing can lead to musculoskeletal problems including pulled muscles, cartilage inflammation and even rib fractures.
It will all resolve once the cough resolves although it will likely take a few days for these problems to completely resolve.
