Hi Welcome to icliniq

Ma’am as per your symptoms and description it’s looking like you have tonsillitis. Because it’s for long so can call it chronic tonsillitis.its caused by bacterial infection and if it stays for long sometimes there is formation of tiny whitish stones. And due to that patient feel like something is stucked there not coming out even after trying hard. For its treatment mainly antibiotics are given and multivitamin to heal faster.

Ma’am is it possible to get a picture of it ?

Because to set dosage i have to see the severity of infection. Sometimes if medicine doesn’t help it can be removed by minor incision. I am suspecting it tonsillitis and don’t worry it can be treated easily. Please send a picture of it so i can prescribe you medicine. And same thing for acid reflux if cimitidine is not helpful then we can replace with tab pantop 40 mg twice a day before meal for 3 days . And you will see improvement. Is there any difficulty in passing stool ? Are you able to pass it easily? Do you feel like constipation? Please let me know.

And don’t forget to send a picture or oral lump. Please answer
