hello and welcome to HCM,

You seem to be having an upper respiratory tract infection and you are in the right track to take symptomatic treatment till it becomes better.
You may take any pain killer like crocin for the pain relief. Just make sure you take it after food and never in an empty stomach.
You may also add an anti reflux medication if your throat feels sore
You may consider a throat swab if the symptoms persists or become severe and may be even consider antibiotic therapy in consultation with your doctor

take only warm fluids and do not strain when you speak

get well soon
