I also keep having a really sharp pain in like my deep lower throat and posterior upper back when I breathe in. It comes and goes.?

May be important: Hi Julia, the pain you are having is called "pleuritic" and is made worse by deep breathing, is well localized with one finger and can represent either a clot in the lung, inflammation of the layer around the heart or lung or a small lung infarct due to clot, or pneumonia.

Right side tonsillitis. Stiff neck, ear fullness, TONGUE FEELS PULLED&SLIGHTLY PAINFUL ON RIGHT SIDE&bumps on it deep in throat. Possible tongue cancer?

Unilateral tongue sx: Key issue is how long this has been going on. Most likely at your age, the symptoms are related to a localized infectious process, perhaps a peritonsillar abscess, with an immune reaction leading the tongue and other lymphoid tissue to respond, close off your tubes, enlarge nodes in your neck and even along your tongue. If persistent, go for exam. Oral cancer rare @22, but not impossible w. HPV ...Read more

White lines behind and under tonsils when tongue is out far. Deep in throat near epiglottis. No fever or sore throat. Have allergies. Is this normal?

White lines behind and under tonsils when tongue is out far. Deep in throat near epiglottis. No fever or sore throat. Have allergies. Is this normal?

Most likely: Especially given your history of having allergies, it is very common to see white streaks in the back of the throat and sometimes around the tonsils. This is basically mucus that is draining down from your nose into your throat, which we refer to as postnasal drip and appears the way you describe. This is most often due to allergies.
If fever, pain do occur, have your doctor look at your throat. ...Read more

Just got over a cold. I'm still coughing up blobs of yellow phlegm from deep in my throat. Sometimes quite suddenly. Should I be seen, or wait it out?

Just got over a cold. I'm still coughing up blobs of yellow phlegm from deep in my throat. Sometimes quite suddenly. Should I be seen, or wait it out?

Listen to your body: If you're still not well after a viral illness, it would be a good idea to get checked out. Maybe something 'additional' will be found by having a proper evaluation — such as your blood levels (anemia?), nutritional status (albumin) or even immune function (testing for immunodeficiencies, liver problems etc). After all, that's what doctors do. Infectious disease docs are well suited to address Qs. ...Read more

When I breathe in or out I can feel a rattle deep in my throat. This does make me cough. I have asthma. My vocal range is also very limited now.?

See below: Coughing alone will give you hoarseness. Control the asthma, make sure that you don't have acid reflux or postnasal drip. The rattle is probably secretions from asthma or sinus problems. All of these should go away with proper treatment. If not, consult ent. And of course quit smoking if you do. ...Read more
