I woke up this morning and couldn't talk. My throat felt like it was glued shut. It hurts on the left side. Strep, bronchitis, or just a sore throat?

See doctor... Your symptoms could be due to strep throat infection, tonsillitis or any number of other throat infections. You need to be seen by your doctor so your throat can be examined, throat culture obtained if needed and treatment rendered. Your symptoms do not sound like acute bronchitis. Good luck!
