Weird looking throat

Hi-
I've been "diagnosed" with possible acid refulx. Never had a follow up appt. I've also had my tonsils out about 12 years ago.
Anyway- My throat always looks really weird. It has bumps all over and i constantly have a feeling of mucous in my throat that's hard to swallow. There are also bumps where my tonsils used to be. I also had an endoscopy/colonoscopy (also have stomach issues) that showed nothing.
Can someone please tell me if this is normal.

I've added a picture. sorry if they're blurry.

It looks like possible yeast. See your Dr for that follow up to be checked for yeast overgrowth. Yeast overgrowth in the body can sometimes cause stomach issues.
Can you say what your diet is like?

I agree. I have had pharangeal thrush before. Although your red bumps in the back there are way more noticeable than mine were. Acid reflux can cause these kinds of problems.
It could also be another type of infection.
Adding yoghurt to your diet may be beneficial in helping regulate things.
See a doc soon.
