Pain in throat after repeated brushing at the back of tongue. How to get relief?

After brushing the back of my tongue repeatedly, I have been having a pain/discomfort in my throat (also caused by certain movements of the tongue) for a few days, a bit like a bad sore throat. I don't see blood anywhere, but even drinking water is unpleasant, very close to painful.

Hello and welcome to HCM,

I had gone through the case and found that pain or discomfort in throat might be due to tonsilitis.

so you must go for proper checkup by doctor.
Meanwhile do gargle with saline water.
