In brief: Could be strep/viral

Your symptoms may be due to a common strep throat infection, which can be easily diagnosed in your doctor's office.
Some other bacteria or viral infections can also cause similar symptoms. For now, it's probably best to take some Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen for the symptoms and contact your doctor's office for an appointment to see if anything else needs to be done.
