In brief: Could be serious

This sounds like an innocent disease called herpangina from a virus that mostly affects children.
And it is possible you have it, if you are exposed to children. However, you are 62. At this age some other more serious things could be happening and I would urge you to see a clinician soon. Meanwhile for comfort you can use warm salt water gargles and Tylenol. Good luck!
