Hi I am Dr Ravinder Sharma. On the basis of information provided it appears that you have an acute infection in throat causing painful swallowing. Acute inflammation in throat can be very painful and can cause painful swallowing. However there are other possibilities too. I would advise you for a ENT consultation and a hypopharyngoscopy to resolve the issue

I hope this answers your concerns. Feel free to contact me if you want further information about it
With regards
