Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding pain on swallowing and swollen uvula. You are also feeling as you have something in your throat.

Your symptoms indicates that you are suffering from uvulopharyngitis, this swollen uvula gives you feeling as there is something is in your throat. the pharyngitis is a painful condition which herts you on swallowing.

You may take now-

(a) Antibiotic.

(b) anti inflammatory.

(c) Warm saline gargling.

I hope this will help you.
