Brief Answer: looks like swelling at back of your tongue Detailed Answer: Hello I have studied your case, As per your history and symptoms it looks like there can be swelling at back of your tongue or on posterior aspect of throat. Primarily you can take analgesic with anti-inflammatory like enzomac plus. Do betadine gargles. If there is no improvement in symptoms then you need to consult ENT surgeon for clinical examination and further investigation. If there is swelling you may need MRI or FNAC of swelling. If required you may need to do blood investigation for prognosis and recovery. Hope this answers your query.
