Yes: These are possible explanations and ct will not be helpful in excluding them from consideration. If you are better, relax. If not, see your doctor again and if not satisfied with their response get a second opinion. Good luck and hope this clears up soon.

ENT consult: Go see an ENT specialist. Neck problem would not have accounted for your throat and ear discomfort.
