Recurring sore throat, bumps on the tongue, enlarged taste buds. Reason?

I have had a recurring sore throat for about 2 months now. It comes and goes. I saw my GP about 6 weeks ago and she looked at my throat and said there was nothing wrong, but the sore throat persists. I have now noticed that I have some bumps on the side of my tongue and a few days ago the tastebuds at the back of my tongue became enlarged. I have always had a map tongue, but nothing like this. What could it be?
