Tonsil problems and possibly acid reflux?...Needing answers!

I've been having some very slight throat issues for many months now. My tonsils look red and irritated all of the time. Every once in a while I'll have days where it feels like one of my tonsils is swollen, will hurt when I yawn, and my throat will feel a little irritated. Also noticed that I've developed some small holes in my tonsils what weren't there previously. Currently have several white spots on one of my tonsils which are worrying me. This has also coincided with a bunch of GI symptoms as well. I'm having an upper endoscopy next week for continuing abdominal discomfort. Also have burping, hiccups, chest discomfort, and back aches. My doctor thinks it is due to acid reflux. I failed to mentioned the throat issues because I honestly didn't think about it. Could acid reflux me causing my throat issues? Does it sound like seperate issues are occuring or could this somehow be all tied together and not be reflux? Any insight would certainly be appreciated.

Forgot to mention that I also wake up every morning with a white film covering my tounge. What do you all think could be going on?

The infection from your tonsils could be causing your stomach issues. Sounds like you need to have them out.

Titchou - Thanks for your response. It's only the last few days where I have noticed the white spots on my tonsil. My throat symptoms are pretty mild. Would I have to be having a lot of pain with my tonsils if they were infected to the point they needed to be removed? Could that really be contributing to my GI symptoms?

Today was a rough day as my chest started aching an hour or 2 after I ate this morning and continued for most of the day. I'm burping a lot and having hiccups after eating, usually after I've been sitting and then stand up, and at random times. I just don't feel good at all and I'm really worried that something serious is going on. Afraid that if I go to the doctor about the tonsil issues that they won't do the endoscopy this week. I need answers as this is really starting to drive me crazy.
