People will have to ditch their own jobs to cover for me.
but this is the literal worst sore throat I can remember, my head is throbbing, and it's 4am and I haven't gotten any sleep.
What do I do?

It's a cold, suck it up and go to work. Moving about will probably help you.
Sore throats need soothing. Make some honey and lemon up with warm water and keep drinking it. Ginger is good for a cold, so lemon an ginger tea with honey is great. Live natural yoghurt helps enormously when I have a throat infection, but it has to be LIVE.
See if you can get some paracetamol with caffeine in, great for colds and going to work.
Steam your head: run the hot tap until it's REALLY hot, then fill the sink and get a towel and cover the sink and get your head in the steam. Breath deeply to make sure it really gets in your lungs, should help with the headache. If you have anything like vapo rub, anything eucalyptus-y then chuck that in the water and inhale.
Fresh air should help rather a lot, I know it seems like the last thing you want to do, go outside, but it helps clear your sinuses and head.
Go into work though, save the sick days for when you REALLY need them.0
