Thanks for writing in.
I read your problem,detail provided by you is not clear,but still it seems that it is because of infection in molar teeth, so i would like to suggest you visit an oral surgeon and get the thorough examination done including x-rays of the molar region.

Nothing to get worried.
Take Care

Hello there...its been how long that you got your wisdom teeth removed? if its a recently removed wisdom tooth you would have pain radiating to your throat at times...if it is removed long back, then check out for the second molar tooth. get it examined for proximal decay that goes unnoticed following wisdom tooth removal...any swelling accompanied anywhere in the oral cavity you are suppose to start of antibiotics to prevent unnecessary infections...Get yourself examined from a Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
