Seriously worried

So I noticed a slight stinging on the left side of my throat, almost like a scratch or something. I looked in my throat, and noticed what loopked like small orange-yellow bumps on the back of my throat. I feel like I need to clear my throat somewhat often, and sometimes I feel a slight burning that extends down my respiratory system. I also deep like my throat is a little tight when I swallow but I'm not sure if it's just from nervousness, or possibly in my head. I cough and wheeze sometimes, but I'm also at risk for asthma so that could be unrelated I'm 18, and I smoke though very lightly, roughly a pack a week max, for about a year. I also dip occasionally, anywhere from once a week to 2 times a day, but I've only done about 2 1/2 cans in 3-3 1/2 months. I also have acid reflux, drink A LOT of soda, no alcohol, and have had many tonsil/throat infections in the past but all bacterial and not like this at all. Not sure what's related and if I'm just being paranoid, but any help is appreciated. Also, currently working on a plan to quit the tobacco. It's hard, but I know I need to. So please no lectures on that. Thanks everyone
