Ok, this is so weird i never really talked about it before but I am kind of concerned. You see, I used to get these white spots on the back of my throat ( Where my tonsils are supposed to be), and I read about it on the internet and it said it was something like Tonsillitis :confused: I dunno, it's weird. But I als oread that only people hwo have tonsils get them, well, I had my tonsils removed when I was 6 and I got those white spots on my throat where my tonsils were before they got removed. I was wonderring if any one knew what these were? Last year I got them a lot, and they went away until just today I noticed I got another one. :rolleyes: So I dunno what it is. It usually happens right after I get sick I think, because yesterday I was feeling super dizzy and I had a hard time standing up straight, and then my ears kept ringing , it was weird but my ears are fine now, it's just my throat I am worried about. Any one know what this could be?

Well i get tonsillitos every year, and your Glands swell up, and you would be in bed trust me.
The thing is one year i left it without treatment, and it spread to my chest or stomach i think.

It was that painful.

So get it checked out!

A bit late to this I think, but it sounds as if you have strep throat, do you have a cough? If your throat is sore and you are not otherwise well, strep could be the reason! It is contagious and you will need to have a throat swab done to check for the bacteria, if it is positive for strep then you will need a prescription, I am not a Dr, but I am around enough medical personal daily and your symptoms sound familiar!

Hope you feel better http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

Hi Mel! Sorry to hear you're not well. White spots on the throat could be Strep throat, but sometimes they're caused by post-nasal drip. You should go and see a doctor and he'll give you something for it. Hope you're feeling better real soon. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

Hi Mel! This is Shandroid's husband -- I'm one of those wacky medical types...

The white spots on your throat are called quinsy. Quinsy is indicative of a minor throat infection / inflammation. It often presents itself during the common cold, definitely in the "sore throat stage." The quinsy spots pass quickly, and are nothing more than pus pockets, or as I like to call them -- throat zits. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif

Hang in there kiddo, you have nothing to worry about. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

For reassurance, or development of fever, worse symptoms, etc. definitely consult your Dr. :cool: ( that's my "can't sue me disclaimer" http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif ) ;)

Thanks every one. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif The white spot went away but the left part of where a tonsil is supposed to be (if I didn't have it removed) is a little swollen. It doesn't hurt though, my throat isn't sore and I am not coughing, but I have been getting kinda dizzy and a little more head aches lately. I'll just give it a ocuple days and if things don't get better then I'll go see a doctor. Thanks again every one. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/grouphug.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif
