Going from hot apartment to air conditioned home to hot apartment... Will I get sicker?

I live on the top floor of a high-rise apartment building. I rarely use the AC (the heat doesn't really both me; it's usually around 85) but I do use fans during the day and when I sleep. I'm home for about 5 days and going back to the apartment on Sunday. My home is AC'd and the temperature is around 75, much cooler to my skin.
In the mist of the week I developed a frog in my throat and am slightly warm (internally). I know temperature changes aren't the direct cause of sickness but I get like this whenever the temperature changes.
I also start my new job on Monday and I do not want to be sick. Sunday I'm going back to the apartment. Would it be better for my health in the short term to sleep in the hot apartment or get an AC beforehand for my small bedroom?
