Thank you for posting on HCM
From your description you are obviously presenting with an infection probably of the urinary tract and an associated oropharyngitis. Blood test and urine analysis + culture might be needed. Test to rule out diabetes need to be performed. You should visit an ER as soon as possible. Your doctor will need to do you a throat exams and examine the quadrants of the abdomen that are tender. Pyelonephritis is likely the problem. Abdominal ultrasound might be needed.

Hope this helps

Hi thanks for your question.
Feeling thirsty all the time along with frequent uninations are symptoms of diabetes.Difficulty in swallowing along with sore throat indicates pharyngitis ( inflammatin of throat) Pharyngitis can produce myalgia (muscle and joint pain).
I would suggest you to consult a physician,who may be able to examine your throat to confinm pharyngitis as a cause of your symptoms.He/She may also get your blood sugar done to rule out or confirm diagnosis of diabetes.
Hope this answers your question.
