I have the same thing going on. Swollen tonsils, lump in throat and numbness and tightness under chin and left side of my throat. My doctor said not to worry and that it should go away. I was also diagnosed with acid reflux and prescribed medication for that. I do feel like the lump in my throat has subsided some, and the numbness comes and goes but my tonsils are constantly swollen. My doctor also diagnosed me with anxiety and I constantly think something is wrong with me and I’m dying. I have noticed that my anxiety makes  the lump in my throat feeling much worse. I’ve started trying CBD and it has made my Anxiety better so I’m starting o think it’s just really bad anxiety causing these problems. Hope this helps
