I do not believe that a trip to the ER is necessary from what you have posted.
You might have the flu or a cold. In any event it sounds viral in nature and, as such, no antibiotics are needed.
You can try OTC treatment at home or, if you like, I'd suggest you see your doctor on Monday.
Does this make sense to you?
