The Swollen Tonsils, The Throat Feels Hot And Slimy?
Hello, I’m Alya, 16 years old. In the past, I often got tonsillitis, but starting around a dozen years until now my tonsils have never been swollen again. But about 1 week / 2 weeks ago my tonsils suddenly swelled right, the left deflated so rather invisible. I also feel my throat sometimes feels hot sometimes it feels cold and slimy. But I do not feel pain or strange at all when swallowing food. Only when I am in a normal condition (not eating food) my throat feels disturbed by the cold and heat. I think it was caused by my stomach, there was a sensation in my throat. But after I eat it, the sensation still feels so. Why is that? does it have something to do with my stomach?
