Sharp throat pain when swallowing, turning head. 2 days later sore throat on left w/ swollen lymph node. No fever or cough. I have my tonsils and GERD?

Pharyngitis: This may be Strep throat, viral infection, conceivably due to your GERD, or of other causes. If acute you should be tested for Strep and treated if positive or if the physical findings are highly suspicious. Cannot possibly diagnose this over the internet.
