I have had tonsillitis for two weeks now. Past three days I have had uncontrollable coughing which is extremely painful. Could I have something else?

In brief: Yes

Tonsillitis is a regional issue involving part of the upper airway.
It is not uncommon for areas such as the sinuses to become involved with the infectious process, and or a respiratory irritant could trigger drainage that would set off a chronic cough.A re-visit may sort this out for you.
