Hi all, about 2-3 months ago i had pain in my jaw, throat and ears. I went to the GP and she said it's nothing. Then I went again after 2 weeks for another checkup and she said it's nothing once again. I insisted on seeing an ENMT specialist, so I did. He had a look in my throat and diagnosed me with chronic tonsillitis, although I had my tonsils out as a child. I told him that and he said that he sees some tonsils there and maybe they were not removed entirely. I don't believe so, since not long ago, I had nothing that resembled tonsils.. He said it's most likely a viral infection since I don't have symptoms like fever, running nose, cough etc. This doesn't look like an infection to me..I hope it is though.. the lumps marked shown by arrows are hard and don't hurt and look worse by the day. I would appreciate any opinion on this. Here's a picture
