Probably see someone: Have a fever too? While you might just have a virus, you have said enough buzz words that I start to worry about meningitis. You could also have a peritonsilar abscess. Probably worth getting checked out. In the mean time, plenty of fluids, motrin, and contact your doctor!

Dr. Gilbert's advice should be heeded promptly. Your illness may turn out to be mild and uncomplicated, but always better safe than sorry, particularly when the alternatives can be life-threatening.
