Hello.
The pain at the base of the skull on the same side could be related to the infection in the throat and to the local enlarged lymph nodes. You should consult with your doctor so that appropriate clinical examination, antibiotic course can be prescribed for you. You can also do gargling with warm water with salt. Drink plenty of vitamin c enriched fluids. Hope this will help. Regards.
