Sore Throat or Worst?


Q: Hello! I've been having problems with my throat starting this morning. Yesterday, it was sore but now as bad as it was when I woke up. Last night, I woke up every other hour with a sore throat and tried to disregard it. Around 8:20 today, I got up with a burning throat and a headache. I've been coughing up mucus since I woke up. I've been trying to have liquids like tea and water all day, but it's only temporary to stop the pain. What can I do to stop the pain, if anything else? Will it be done by tomorrow?

Symptoms:  Coughing, Sore throat, High temperature
