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?
how about me with silent reflux, no one seems to even know what that is!...losec isnt helping anymore, my throat feels like ive swallowed mini cheese graters...(have no tonsils), im over this!! should stop eating chocolate and drinking fizzy drinks!
