I currently have a ridiculous amount of pain in my throat (now for a week) with no other symptoms. Went to urgent care (while on vacation) a few days ago and was told I had a virus and to take ibuprofen and tylenol which doesn't seem to help at all. Can't see my primary doctor until tomorrow or maybe the next day.

Urgent care also did a strep test culture (negative). It's currently very difficult to eat or drink anything- even water is excruciating. Should I go back to a different urgent care today? And what should I tell them to get more help than before? The pain seems to be localized to one side of my throat. What are my options wrt pain management?
