Well 10 days ago I started having that pain during swallow. I took high power Advil for 2/3 days and that pain went away. Never any fever or pain on the tonsil area after taking those advils. later out of curiosity I checked my tonsil on the left side and found that tonsil is swollen compared to the right one. I never checked my tonsils before so I got very worried and went to two GPs. They checked all the nodes and infection but all came clear. So she said it might be viral and would go away soon. I gargled with salt for last 4/5 days but still the it is swollen. I contacted one online ENT dr. he says it is not unusual and said nothing to worry. Though it does not bother me at all still I made an appointment with my ENT here end after couple weeks because I am nervous by nature. Any one here have similar experience and doing fine now?
