In brief: Sore throat

Those symptoms reflect a throat infection that should be evaluated by your physician to rule out a strep throat.
You probably know by now that the strep test done on a throat swab takes only minutes to reveal whether you have strep or not. If it turns out negative, you have a viral infection for which you can take pain killers and warm saltwater gargles. You are contagious - frequent handwashing.
