Seeing a : Healthcare provider to properly examine and treat your pharyngitis would be the wisest thing to do. At this stage it is very likely a bacterial infection, with the night sweats possibly an indication for hospital visit due to higher probability of septicemia (bacterial infection of the blood). I would not wait, go to the ED to get proper care.
