Strep Throat answers needed

Patient: Hey, I was diagnosed with Strep Throat 2 days ago and my symptoms have only worsened. I went from not being able to swallow to earaches, constant burning when I swallow, and headaches. Should I head to the ER or will it soon blow over? I haven’t been eating or drinking much the last couple of days. Even though my medicine says take with food or milk.

Symptoms: Sore Throat, Earaches, Headaches, Raw Feeling everytime I try to swallow, no sleep.
