    White bump on the back of throat and tongue
    Crookit posted:
    I woke up one morning with a bad sore throat turned out to be strep throat. The doctor gave me amoxicillin, ibuprofen and throat lozenge. I started feeling better after my 10 days. Then all in the sudden it just came back with a bad cough because of sinus drainage. After a week a felt a little better. Now I wake up with the worse sore throat, hurts to swallow. I have a white bump on the back of my throat and tongue. My head hurts and so do my joints. It's like this sore throat just keeps coming back even worse. Pain scale is a 9. And it seems to get worse on the weekends when Dr offices are closed.

    It's now a couple of days later and I hope you've since seen your doctor.

    If you have any further questions, I encourage you to post on our Ear, Nose and Throat community .
