Viral syndrome: It sounds as if you've contracted a viral syndrome. These are usually self-limiting but if your symptoms get worse, see your doctor.

Many things: Many things. A question I would ask is how long youve had pain. Less than a week. No problem - probably pharyngitis. Longer than 2 weeks - could be a problem. See an ENT doc - regular MD can't examine the throat well.
