It sounds like, what you are feeling, is associated with swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonsils</span>
or may actually be the tonsils
. In either case, you should have your tonsils
and throat examined and should do so with

varies greatly but it can sometimes be severe, involve other tissues in the immediate tonsillar area and may even spread to distant parts of the body. Grossly swollen tonsils
are unusual in an adult and should be treated as a serious condition.
