It just sounds to me like bad allergies/hay fever; happens the same way to me every spring. Although, I’m not a doctor so I have no idea.

I had my tonsils removed but when I get strep i KNOW its strep… because it will feel like you are swallowing razor blades.. not just hurt to swallow ..but like DEATH !! (sorry , perhaps im a tad dramatic) … and i dont remember coughing too much either 

I live in Canada so I cant relate to the insurance issue (understandable that you would be reluctant) , but even though health care is free here if I had the same symptoms as you I would probably just get some tea with honey and take a day off wrapped up in blankets and watch TV/movies

Do you find that it hurts real bad when you swallow?  Your throat could just be irritated from coughing. If your sore throat worsens or if you have a fever I would probably go see a doctor, but from what your describing it doesn’t sound too bad. I know when I had strep just swallowing my saliva felt like razor blades. Hope you feel better!

It kind of sounds like post nasal drip to me from the allergies.  Are you on any medicine for the allergies or trying a nasal rinse?

if you can, try taking an antihistamine over the counter.  if it’s allergies something like claritin should help a lot.
