I've never actually heard of this, but it makes perfect sense to me that your body would be aching after all that upheaval. I broke two ribs once during a terrible coughing fit, so nothing along these lines would surprise me.
Your best bet is to stop breathing in deeply because I just know that you are doing this over and over to see if it still hurts, insuring that the muscles will have as hard a time as possible getting back to normal.
There is an old joke - a man says to the doctor, "doc, it hurts when I move my arm like this" and the doctor says "So, don't move your arm like that". Groan - I know it's corny - but it's true!!!
