Can you tell me if I have gonorrhea of the throat (looks a lot like strep which i tested negative for), how long would that typically last without treatment?

In brief: A long time

It can last for weeks or even months.
Especially, it can hang around without symptoms and make other people sick. It sounds like you might do well to go back to your physician and ask for a culture on Thayer-Martin media.
