Had a headache and threw up one day. After that all I've had is a sore throat. It looks red and a little swollen. No insurance. Is this strep?

In brief: Possibly

I can't tell without a test and exam. But strep typically causes stomach pain or nausea, sore throat, fever and sometimes rash.
Strep is much less likely if you have a sore throat with cold symptoms like runny nose, cough.
