Enlarged papillae on the back of tongue, numb throat. Diagnosed pneumonia, on antibiotics. Advice

I have had a fever for almost a month now and been to 3 different doctors. The last one diagnosed me with pnumonia and gave me a shot and a third antibiotic to take. The fever has decreased but is not completely gone and now I have enlarged papillae on the back of my tongue. My throat is numb and I cannot taste much of anything. Can you please help me?
