I woke up yesterday with my left tonsil swollen and a sore throat. I freak myself out easily. Is it normal?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: I do not know.

I can't answer if it is normal- i don't have a complete hx nor have i examined you.
Tips: sore throat – gargle with warm salt water (1/2 tsp salt in 8 oz of water). Get strep test/culture if very sore.
