Sounds like: you have enlarged tonsils! See an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist for an evaluation! Things should not be "sticking to" the tonsils! As far as the vomiting, I think you triggered your gag reflex! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

More testing needed: Other issues may be involved such as esophageal spasm, achalasia, or scleroderma just to name a few.

Ask your doctor about using Clear.ease Lozenges - these are the papain/bromelain enzymes you melt in your mouth between cheek and gums to thin the mucus. ...Read more

Probably not: Based on what was stated, and you are not a smoker with any other medical history, the most probable cause is GERD (see below). Would recommend cutting back on or eliminating tomatoes, onions, caffeine, alcohol, mint, chocolate, and citrus fruits. Also no food for 1 hour before bedtime and no tight clothing at the waist. Over the counter antacids as needed. If no improvement within a week see MD ...Read more
