Question VERY painful white spots on back of throat...

Hi all.
Yesterday I woke up with excusation pain in the back of my thraot and I had a high fevre, the chills and fatigu. Well I thought it was the flu and I am pretty sure that it the flu. But there is one thing that I find puzzling. I have these extremely painful white bumps on the back of my throat past my toncils. I read online that they say to "pop then".
What are your suggestions. I can say that they are in a VERY hard to reach area. AND THEY hurt so badly I can't swallow and my head is throbbing.
PLEASE I need your help with this.
Thank you kindly.

You almost certainly have strep. Go to any clinic that is open on Saturday and get antibiotics.

Do NOT try to pop them!!!

Yes, I agree - strep and the flu often go hand in hand and you will need antibiotics - they won't help the flu but will get rid of the strep!

Feel better! Oh yeah - I sure wouldn't attempt to pop the white things in your throat.
