Throat and neck pain with swelling and lots of mucus

Hi, I have been having pain in my throat for over a week now. At first I had a lot of mucus, runny nose, and coughing. Now I have pain in my throat, swollen glands, coughing, headaches, and this morning I woke up with pain in my neck behind my ears as well. The pain is more on the left side of my neck. My age is 28 and my weight is 150. I eat healthy and work out a few times a week. I do not have any medical issues. However, a lot runs in my family including leukemia , heart problems, diabetes , high blood pressure and high cholesterol . (etc) I currently do not have insurance, so I am unable to go to the doctors.
