An infection: It sounds like you have a viral or bacterial infection. Get a throat culture to make sure you do not have strep throat which is usually the only reason that you may need antibiotics for this. In the meantime, tylenol (acetaminophen) and/or motrin, fluids, chloraseptic or cepastat and rest. If you get much worse, severe headaches, throat closes, or shortness of breath, or anything else scary, then go to the ER

Pharyngitis?: Get your throat swabbed for strep throat. Your eusthacian tubes may be partillay blocked from inflammation at the throat side. See your doctor.
