Hi. I hope you have got your blood tests including your hemoglobin,and other blood counts done and they are normal. Sore gums are usually not a common thing associated with tonsillitis/ pharyngitis. I would advise you to get a throat swab for investigation. Please get evaluated by an ENT surgeon too if your blood tests are normal. Thank you.
