Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Sore throat and muscle soreness suggest an infection.
Viral infection is more common.
That usually can be treated at home with Advil 2 to 3 tablets at a time with food every 6 to 8 hours.
However, you may have caught streptococcal infection as well.
That needs further evaluation at your doctor's office.
So if you do not see any improvement by tomorrow, you should see your doctor.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
