Hello. This is my first time on this site. It's really quite neat. But I'm here because I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with me. About a week ago I developed a small (but extremely painful) white bump on the roof of my mouth. Unfortunately it's right in the center and everything I eat rubs against it before it makes it's way down my throat. To say the least, this is incredibly painful. Yesterday my ears and throat had also become affected. They now hurt as well. I have no fever. Nothing else is wrong with me except an occassional sharp head pain, which I've been having for several months now. They come and go so quickly, I've dismissed those as normal. I'm not sure if that is related to the sore on my mouth. I have no oral herpes or anything and am happily married, so I'm not worried it's anything like that. I've read some things saying it could be that. Not in my case. But, I did quit smoking 9 months ago, that wouldn't be any relation, I'd hope. I'm on here, trying to self diagnose myself because I have no insurance right now, which I typically do. Shame on me. ;) If anyone has any suggestions, any help ... please write me back. I apprecriate your time. Thanks in advance.
