Not really emergency urgent, but I am totally stumped right now. Earlier today as I was eating lunch, right after my first bite, the back of my throat started getting painful. Its a blunt scratchy pain. I thought I may have developed an allergy somehow, and waited till I got home to check it out. The pain went down over time, but it did it again at dinner. It doesnt seem to be a specific food, but whenever I eat something, it starts getting painful. I got a flashlight and looked in, and the back of my throat, including the tonsils, is red and inflamed with vessels showing through. It seems like tonsillitis or something, but only set off by eating? Yes, Ive googled and looked through my medical books, but nothing fits exactly what Im having. Any ideas?
