Need to be seen. By your doctor, you may very well Rx meds for your upper airways inflammation causing such symptoms, as well you may be having reflux adding to the problem in your throat, and possibly causing your upset stomach. In the interim, use saline nasal washes, salt water gargles, and OTC antacid or PPI, but read the labels carefully, wish you well.
Try antihistamine. But even more important, find out what may be triggering the itchy throat for example, do you have the itching only after having eaten certain fruits? If so, I suspect that you may have hay fever as well. If you have any problem with throat closing up on you, then you will need to consult an allergist.
