why does it hurt to swollow?

a couple days ago my throat was kinda sore and my chest hurt a little almost like I was getting a chest cold. My nose isn't stuffed up, but my throat actually stopped hurting, but now since yesterday it doesn't hurt only to swollow. I am not sure why. I keep coughing as well and my ears are starting to hurt. I checked in the meirror to see if I might have strep throat, but I don't see any white blister things in the back of my mouth so could it just be a sore throat or something else?

  • forgot to mention that I have been sneezing here and there as well. I read the symptoms on google and it says the more cold symtoms you have the less likely it is strep throat because step doesn't normally come on with cold symptoms
