my throat has been hurting for the last week. my tonsils are very swollen too. i went to the doctor and it isnt strep. it hurts severely when i swallow and yawn. it is at the worst in the morning and during the night. none of the common cold medicines are working. i have even tried gargling with salt water and that didnt help. does anyone know what this is and how i can get rid of it??

please help.
