Used a Clorox cleaner to clean my bathroom around 4:30/5 o clock yesterday afternoon. I ended up with watery eyes, sore throat, and a little soreness ?

In brief: Temporary symptoms

Chlorine fumes are very irritating to the lung.
If the concentration is high enough you can get temporary bronchitis. The good news is that the lung tissues heal quickly so there won't be any long-term damage, and no medical treatment should be needed.
