Unhappy Tonsilitis

IM 33YRS OLD AND THE DOC HAS TOLD ME TODAY THAT I HAVE A ENLARGED LINGUAL TONSIL AND THAT I HAVE TONSILITIS.

I DONT HAVE NORMAL TOSILS AS MINE WERE TAKEN OUT WHEN I WAS 5YRS OLD BUT THE LAST 3 YRS THEY HAVE GROWN BACK.

WHAT R THE SYMPTOMS OF TONSILITIS?

I HAVE BEEN GETTING A STIFF NECK ON BOTH SIDES, JAW STIFFNESS, A FEELING THAT THE PART UNDER MY TONGUE IS SWELLING AND ACCASIONAL STONES

THANK YOU

Re: Tonsilitis

tonsils will be swollen, red, may even exhibit pus on the surface. You may have a fever although at our age it's not uncommon to not have a fever. Jaw stiffness is not uncommon. There is argument about whether or not stones mean infection is present. I have had stones when my tonsils were flared and when they weren't so... But if you went to the doc you should have been given diagnosis and RX I am guessing.
