Please : Please schedule a a visit with your primary care provider. You are likely dealing with a throat infection (pharyngitis) which could be bacterial or viral. There are tests that can be done in order to rule out a bacterial cause(strep) in which case you will need antibiotics. Also you may have allergies with resultant post nasal drip that is causing your symptoms, and/or an ear infection. In the meantime take Ibuprofen for pain, warm salt gargles, and a daily anti-histamine. I hope you find answers and relief soon.
