Pain in roof of mouth (center only) and pain swallowing
I'm not sure if this is some kind of infection or what. Pain started 2 days ago on one side when swallowing (feels like tonsillitis, but I have no tonsils). Then yesterday, the other side started to hurt as well, and I started to get pain in the roof of my mouth (that pain starts at the rear of my mouth and radiates forward, but it's not all over - it's only in the center - like in a line from the back towards the front). And I'm not sure if this is related, but my gums are a bit tender when brushing (which isn't the norm for me). Nothing looks red, there are no bumps, and no other visual symptoms. Does this sound like an infection?
