Can anyone help me? Is this normal?

Posted , 7 users are following.

I have no flu symptoms at all. But I have lots of sharp stomach pains right in the middle below my chest bone. Today I had the worst pain and then threw up. I threw up blood, not a lot but then I checked my throat and saw this.... Is this normal? I've had the swollen tonsils for about a month but they didnt bother me. But are those bumps normal?

    Hi Idvn

    Your tonsils appear to be inflammed.

    That said, vomiting ant anount of blood is never okay. Go to the ER.

    Just below your sternum is your stomach proper.

    I would like to hear back from you

    kind regards

      hello! thanks for replying. I went to my doctor today and first they did the strep test and it was negative. when the doc lookes at my throat she said it was inflamation on my tonsils and so she gave ne antibiotics..she also said the bumps are related from irritation from acid ....she referred me to a gastroenterologist just because i have really bad acid reflux problems(im on omeprazol) and she said it might be related to that. I might get a endoscopy done.... Thats it until now. But still worried

      No, no, no worrying. You made a good decision to post, you went to the doc, got some antibiotics, abd are going to gastro...endoscopy, just had one myself mid August ...I have ulcers and reflux and I am a happy person.

      If you bring up more blood, you go back to the ER.

      If you increase the head of your bed four to five inches, this may help reduce the reflux.

      kind regards

    Hi, I have the same bumps in my throat and since yesterday my throats been feeling very dry and it always feels like there is something in my throat. That feeling went away for a while but it is back now. I had sore throat with white yellow puss 3 times last year and a week ago I had puss on tonsils and a little sore but no fever. The puss doesnt seem to completely go away. Every time its like a really small puss stays behind just waiting for an infection or something. I removed it a few times last year and every time I look in my throat I see it very small. Every time the doctor just give me antibiotics without taking a sample to test it. I'm scared that it might be cancer. Please help!

      The bumps might have been around for a while; I've had the same bumps too for a while now, it is generally because of post nasal drip. By the way, I was a half pack a day smoker as well.

      Do get it checked though, so that you can get a remedy for it.

      Cheers,
