Any suggestion for pain like a needle jabbing into lower left tonsil and deeper throat?

In September I had a fish bone stuck in my throat , they removed it in hospital using a pair of tweezers and the pain seemed to go away but yesterday it started to come back when I swallowed. It's the same sort of pain that I had with the fishbone but it sort of feels like a needle is jabbing into my lover left tonsil and deeper throat, it's seems to be getting worse and hurts when I breathe! Please help I'm only 13 and I'm quite scared.

welcome to HCM!

I have read the question and from my clinical experince I can say that the pain in your throat is increasing and extending down wards, looks like an injury or infection. Nothing major, so please donot panic.

You should visit a doctor and get your throat examined. He would give you a good antibiotics and some pain killers, with them you should start feeling good after a day or two. Ok
# he may also go for some blood tests: complete blood count.

It is a usual presenting symptom of infection / injury when -- while eating something hard, ether is sharp pain, difficulty in swallowing, etc.
It is well tretable.

## you should avoid spicy food and take more liquids (as they are easy to swallow), this will help the area to heal fast.

Hope the reply is useful
Please talk to your parents and visit a doctor.
