In brief: Pharyngitis.

This can be due to a virus, streptococcus bacteria (strep throat), reflux disease or allergies. The best way to tell if it is probably strep is if you have a fever and no runny nose or cough, then it is likely strep throat if you have a family member diagnosed with the same. If you have a cough, runny nose, or itchy eyes then most likely it is allergies. If you find that you cough when laying down and have heartburn then it is likely due to reflux. If your symptoms last longer than 7-10 then you should see your physician to help sort out your symptoms.
