We are not doctors. I'm not sure what convinced you to believe that any of us have any viable medical experience, but I can assure you that taking medical advice from a Nintendo forum can not be one of your brighter moments.
Please see a doctor.

It's the black lung pop
The most likely one is it's justs "one of those things" - our bodies act weird sometimes, hurt at random, who knows. Could be just that. Any history of asthma? Has there been any recent construction going on in your area? Allergy season? etc etc etc
Also possible is damage from the accident you didn't immediately feel, but is causing trouble nonetheless.
Also possible is that you've forced yourself to cough so much that you've actually damaged lining somewhere.
Also possible (but much less likely) is that gamut of horrifying plagues and diseases that WebMD will tell you that you have.
Give it another day or two. Often these things just work themselves out. If it doesn't clear up, or does and later resurfaces, see a doctor. However, be on the look out for fever, as that can be a symptom of infection/blood poisoning which is a very immediate and dangerous problem.

Coughing is the wrong thing to do to deal with dust...
If you must be paranoid, then just take the time to make deep breaths.
That will help out your lungs a lot more than coughing.
Also, you can make an appointment to see a lower rung guy at a clinic MUCH sooner ( and cheaper ) than what it takes to see an actual doctor.
They will be knowledgeable enough to know if you need to schedule a Dr.appointment, and they will likely be able to get you a sooner appointment than you otherwise would if it is expedient.

That said, though, it sounds like a pulled or sore muscle in your chest of some sort. It's not something I would call 911 for or anything, but calling your doctor or seeing one the next chance you get to confirm that it is just a pulled or sore muscle and nothing more serious.

When I used to run Cross Country I would run a brisk 6 miles a day. Occasionally on days where I pushed myself hard I would find it hard to breathe for a day or two afterwards (same symptoms you described). Then it would randomly dissapear and I would forget about it. I'm not sure if a long walk could trigger something like that, but its possible.
If the problem lasts more than 5 days I would see a doctor.

I'm a doctor who's banned from practice in 46 states, you can't tell me what to do.
I've performed countless back-alley lung transplants. I think I know what I'm saying when I say you need a new set of lungs. I've got a nice one over here that's only a few weeks old. Might have a bullethole or two in it-I think the previous owner was a criminal of some sort-but I put some duck tape on it, so you should be fine. Let me just grab my rusty pizza cutter, and we'll get started.
But, yeah, go see a doctor if it's pain that doesn't go away relatively quickly/is constantly bugging you. I get muscle cramps or whatever in my chest after pulling them, and they only last maybe a few short seconds, and it's usually only once or twice tops (although sometimes it does take a minute to pass depending on how pulled the muscle is). If it's still gnawing at you, I'd run to a doctor or a clinic to see what's up.
