White coat on tongue and lumps

Hi everyone.

I've already made a discussion regarding the burning sensation in the back of my throat, but i have more weird symptoms now. So besides the burning sensation (which has now improved thanks to everyone who replied to me and gave wonderful advice smile ) i also feel like something is scratching and tickling the left side of my throat. I feel like it's going from the left side of the inside of my mouth to my ear and down my throat. I've also noticed that my tongue is covered in white coat and i've discovered some small lumps at the very back of my tongue. Sometimes my gums hurt and feel inflamed, but it goes away soon. I experience a bit of tongue pain here and there.

Could this be acid reflux induced? Also, i'm having a cold right now, so could it be that instead? I'm having a hard time distinguishing reflux symptoms from my cold as they both cause a sore and itchy (not sure about this though???) throat.

Any help is much appreciated!

    I do have acid reflux but never experience that. Maybe you should visit the doctor because it might be an infection.

      So i thought. I was just scared of it being something else/more serious. I mean, I've head GERD for only almost 10 months and it hasn't been THAT bad all the time, so i guess it couldn't cause anything more serious yet. Right...?

      I do wake up sometimes with a rough feeling of acid in the back of my mouth. Thanks so much for replying, you made me feel at ease. And don't worry about spelling, it's okay xx

      I feel better. Now only the back of my tongue is white-ish and the little bumps at the end of my tongue is still there 😕

      What did you take antibiotics for?

      I don't have a diagnosis, I'm so sorry 😦 I haven't been to the doctor's about this issue because I think it's because of the acid going into my mouth. Do you follow a certain diet for GERD?
