Last night I took my normal medication and it felt as if one of the pills got stuck in my throat. I tried to flush it out with more fluids but I kept feeling this burning sensation. I looked in my throat to see if I could find it and even poked around my tonsils (one is larger than the other and I thought maybe it got stuck behind it) but I could visibly see nothing. I tried more fluids and even took an antacid hoping that the chewy consistency of it might help dislodge it. Nothing helped, so I laid down. This morning the feeling is very tender on the verge of being painful. I gargled with some warm salt water hoping that might help but it didn't. Any ideas?
Let me also add that I suffer from horrible allergies and take Zyrtec and Flonase daily. I have one tonsil that is much larger than the other and seem to get strep and sinus infections very easily. One visit I was diagnosed with an infection (most likely strep she said, although no white spots....just huge tonsil with an opaque surface) after being asked about tonsil stones. I never heard of them so I read up on it. The doctor said she didn't think that's what it was and neither do I since it was just the whole tonsil not crevices around it. I was curious when I got home and poked at it some and was able to drain fluid from the tonsil....yuck!
