For the past three days my throat has been sore. When I looked inside my mouth today I saw white patches on the left side, top of my mouth. Also, the back of my throat looked bumpy. THe white patch begins a little bit above my tongue and is spread out till it reaches my uvula. When I swallow, I feel a sharp stinging pain on the right side of my throat. I don't feel like my throat is swollen, it just hurts very badly. I don't have my tonsils anymore, I had peritonsillar cellulitis about four years ago and had to get them removed. My biggest concern is I've been a smoker for 6 years (unfortunately). I'm only 21, but is it possible the smoking is catching up to me already?

it sounds like tonsilitis to me. i didn't think you could get it if your tonsils had ben removed. you should go and see your doctor to find out what it is.

good luck

Same thing happened to me a few weeks ago and I had my tonsils removed in June of last year. It was strep throat. That causes the white patches in the back of your throat, etc.
