Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds Pharyngitis/ Laryngitis.

You should take some self-care measures until you see your doctor.
Do steam inhalation and saline gargles.

Also, do oral betadine rinse.
You should take the nasal saline spray and OTC Nasonex spray.
You should take Ibuprofen and Nyquil/Claritin.
You should hydrate yourself with warm liquids.
You should start a multivitamin supplement and vitamin C lozenges.
Take OTC Robitussin DM for a cough.
Elevate your head while lying down.

Take Cepacol Sore Throat Pain Relief Lozenges.
If your symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
