Comment from: Dizzy, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: April 08

With tonsillitis I have experienced fever, chills, voice change, pain, and a sore neck. I have also found it hard to swallow. I choke on food and my own saliva. Pain meds barely relieve pain and fever.

Comment from: Lottyloo, Female (Patient) Published: July 31

I had a sore swollen throat and I couldn't eat for three days. I also had a shooting pain going down my neck, and a fever for the first three days. I couldn't lift my head up of the pillow with out felling very dizzy. Then the coughing started. This was one of my worst experiences and I have had four kids.

Headache, pain with swallowing, yellow and white discharge from tonsils, and swollen tonsils.

Comment from: Theresa, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: July 05

Pain in both ears, runny and congested nose, headache and cough. I am thinking of going for a surgical treatment because tonsillitis is real discomfort.
