Aside from the bump, how is the appearance of your tongue? Noted any differences?

If you are a woman, are experiencing a hormonal imbalance?

Good suggestions already listed but I would also stay away from fluoridated toothpaste and mouthwash (salt water is good) until you feel better.

Post nasal drip is a condition where the congestion in a person's sinuses drips down the back of the throat, causing pain.  A provider can see this by looking in the back of the throat and observing the nasal discharge draining down the back of the throat, and often sees lymph tissue swelling in the back which lookds like "cobblestoning" referring to the appearance of the swollen lymph tissue looking as bumpy as the old cobble stone roads.

Rinse out the congestion, and reduce the production of mucous in the nose, and one can decrease the dripping down the back of the throat.  This can decrease many folk's throat pain.
