Throat congestion. History of pharyngitis. Is there anything to be concerned?

I recently have been experiencing what feels like a object in my throat . Ive tried swallowing numerous of times and it still is there. I went to the ER and they diagnosed me with Pharyngitis twice. After taking antibiotics both times im still having the same problem. After doin research and comparing pictures online on my own, I realized that the object I see in the mirror is my epiglottis . Is this something I should be worried about.
