Patient: I am 18 years old and for months now I have been experiencing a dryness in the tonsil area of throat and when I swallow any liquid I feel irritation around the area. As I swallow I also feel a sort of stinging feeling move down the throat to the middle of my chest every time. I have noticed that the middle of my chest is always tender now. this used to also cause me to have horrible breath and sometimes vomit as well. It comes in and out during the day but is most vibrant around night time hours.
