Pharyngitis: It's possible that this is due to allergies from postnasal drip and throat irritation. However, viral infections of the throat as well as strep throat can also cause pain. If you have swollen glands in your neck and under your job, a fever, or can see white spots on your tonsils, you should see your doctor.
