Sore throat on one side.

I have a sore throat on just the left side that keeps coming back and really only hurts when I swallow. It feels like something is sitting in the back of my throat and it is extremely painful and difficult to swallow. Awhile back I had the same problem along with a real bad cough and one day it felt like whatever was sitting in my throat popped and I began to spit up blood, but in like an hour the majority of my throat pain went away and I could swallow. I saw an ENT about it and he did CT scans and other tests and said that nothing looked wrong except for some mild acid reflex and that my adenoids were enlarged. I have not had any more problems with spitting up blood for a couple years now and the ENT said that normally bad things just don’t go away so he gave me a prescription for acid reflex (which I rarely take). Is it my acid reflex that might be causing the same symptoms to return or should I get another opinion? I also have had sinus problems ever since I was a kid which causes a lot of drainage.
