In brief: Pain and obstruction

Tonsillitis is a viral or bacterial infection of the tonsils in the throat.
The major symptoms are 1.) throat pain, 2.) pain on swallowing, 3.) often tender neck glands, 4.) foul taste in the mouth, and 5.) hypertrophy (marked enlargement) causing snoring or a true sleep disorder.
