Oh, well I have been looking for help and I found this wonderful site. Hoping some people can help me :] I have pectus excavatum, which is where my chest caves in. I realize that's not my throat or anything else, but some people say this may effect my tonsils. Well the problem is, for about 4 - 5 weeks, my tonsils have been bothering me. It feels as though I have phlegm in my throat, it makes it difficult to swallow and it's just downright annoying :(. The thing is, I have been to a doctor and I have had a barium swallow. They said "it's your tonsils." That's it. They never said I needed them out or anything. So the thing is, I don't know how to deal with it. It makes it difficult to sleep, difficult to swallow, my breathing is so-so. I was just really worried about it, and hope someone can help me here and get some advice.
