So i've had swollen taste buds before, but it will always be like one at a time. But a few days ago i noticed i have about four of them in a line on the front of my tongue. They were just slightly irritating, so i was looking at them in the mirror and i noticed that the back of my throat is pretty red and it looks like there are small bumps. Also it looks like my uvula is discolored (an almost yellowish spot). my throat doesnt really hurt at all just a slight irritation. I fear it may get worse. Anyone have any ideas of the cause?
You seem to be having a granular pharyngitis by the way you have described it along with vitamin deficiency. Do you have acid regurgitation? Do you have any allergic problems like sneezing, running nose and nasal block?
Take Vitamin B- complex, avoid coffee/ tea and hot liquids for few days. Try taking plenty of warm water, fruits and vegetables. Also try taking Proton pump inhibitors (such as Esomeprazole).
