Hi,

As such a throat examination by a physician should be done in first place to rule out any inflammation in the throat or oral cavity.Usually a Chest X-Ray may be done as a precautionary checkup after auscultation.
Usually for pain management OTC NSAID can be helpful.

Seems condition could be one of many things. Thanks
