Nephrologist Dr. Rakesh Madhyastha's  Response
it could be recuurent sore throat. The hanging thing is uvula and not tonsils but recurrent sore throat is sugestive of tonsilitis. If you are getting tonsilitis more than 3 times in a year or 4 times in 2 years it is an indication for tonsilectome

take care
