Is this tonsilitis or gerd ?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello, I'm Male, 21 years old.

I wonder if anyone here have the symptoms like mine. I feel like something is stuck in my throat and it's clearer when I drink water or swallow my saliva but It's not appear when i eat and that make me nause all the time. I also notice that my tonsil is swollen and my throat is very hurt. So is this tonsilitis or gerd ? Thanks everyone

    Doesn't sound like Gerd, are you having heartburn?  This feeling of something stuck in your throat, do you still have your tonsils? If so, do you see any white spots on them?  I have suffered from tonsil stones before and this could be your issue, try Googling it, they are easy to get rid of with some practice.  If not, I would go to the doc and have them take a throat culture to cross some things out.

    See your doctor for a diagnosis.  A swollen tonsil may be infection.

    Could just be a virus. My son had the same thing when he was 21. It lasted a week.
