Tongue pain, throat pain, hoarse voice, swollen vocal cords

My tongue hurts bad all over but especially in the back when and aft I eat. My throat has hurt for 6 months. And my voice was hoarse for a year and a half. I went to an ENT and he wanted me to eat jello for a month. And he also said for me to go to a speech pathologist to learn how to talk. He said I was overusing my voice even though I don t use my voice much at all. He tried to look at my vocal chords but said they were too swollen and he could not see them. He did not feel My throat with his hands and did not have any images or additional testing done. Should I get a second opinion?

Hello Cra,
Welcome here on hcm.
There is no evidence which suggest for you not to belive this doctor so go with the advise and consult a speech therapist.
