Feels like a lump in my throat when i swallow or post nasal drip for last few months. Also, while looking at throat, tongue cramped like a muscle?

Globus

Muscle
Sounds like something we call "globus" or the sensation of having a lump in the throat. It could be post-nasal drip or something else. Best to see an ENT and let them take a look with a laryngoscope

I've recently got a sore throat.its painful and hurts to swallow etc.ive found red lumps on my tonsils and have a bad cough.any ideas what it might be?

Medical eval

Sore
If you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider & get a strep throat test & culture. Saltwater gargles are helpful. Mix a tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w Aloe Vera juice a couple of times per day. A mix of chamomile tea w honey & a small amount of lemon juice is good.

If you have having problems swallowing and are getting pills lodged in your throat, you should definitely get it evaluated again; a thorough exam is necessary, and if antibiotics are indeed indicated due to proof of infection, liquid suspensions can be used.

I have lumps under tonsils that go to back of throat and cause discomfort when I swallow. Also, tonsils are enlarged for the last 5 months, what are the causes?

Lymph tissue

Neck-throat
Hello. The lymph tissue located around the tonsillar tissue becomes inflamed and painful with infection. Sometimes tonsillar tissue holds food particles which traps bacteria beneath. This can cause "micro abscesses" leading to the inflammation. Gargle with water after meals and use pain medications if needed. See your doctor for confirmation. Good luck.
