My tonsils are swollen and hurt like i have a needle in my throat. I saw a yellow thing coming out from one of the holes in my tonsil. What can it be?

Tonsil stone: Tonsil stones or tonsilloliths, are a common cause for concern, but are generally benign. They can be a source of pain and bad breath however. Try gargling with salt water if this is a recurring problem or sometimes using a waterpik can help prevent these. ...Read more

Is it normal for my throat to itch when i get mad? My face gets hot and cold and feels like hot needles are poking me from the inside. Normal or not?

Is it normal for my throat to itch when i get mad? My face gets hot and cold and feels like hot needles are poking me from the inside. Normal or not?

Anger: It seems you're describing a unique experience that happens to you, when you get "mad." here, your whole being responds to emotional distress. It is uncomfortable, but not health or life-threatening. It's also typical of someone being in touch with her body, and listening to it. A therapist might help you with relaxation processes. A classical homeopath may also help you with an exact remedy. ...Read more

My throat hurts and when I swallow, it feels as if I am swallowing a needle.

My throat hurts and when I swallow, it feels as if I am swallowing a needle.

Sore throat : It sounds like you have pharyngitis or a 'sore throat'. If you've just had a medical procedure done, it's important to check in with the doctor/team that did that. They may have a very good idea as to 'why' you have those symptoms now. If the pain is really that bad, probably you need a professional to look into the back of your throat. You wouldn't want to ignore Strep throat, Mono etc. ...Read more

I just yawned and my jaw/throat area got a cramp. It hurt really bad for about 10 seconds and felt like someone was sticking a needle in my jaw-throat area! why did this happen?

It is a muscle spasm: When you yawn the jaw muscles can get out of sync and the main opening muscle of the jaw called the lateral pterygoid muscle can get a spasm.It is nothing to worry about. Be careful when you yawn. It is like a charley horse. ...Read more
