This is Dr. David

yes, you can send me photos of your throat.

I would be happy to look.

but you can't take a picture down of your esophagus.

did you have an upper endoscopy by a doctor to look down into your esophagus food pipe?

that second photo of your tonsils is pretty good and shows normal tonsillar crypts

those aren't ulcers.

do you have pain in your throat when you eat

those ulcers in your tonsil would most likely not cause pain

hiatal hernia can cause more stomach acid reflux symptoms and this stomach acid can cause sore throat and pain when you eat

have you tried to use a stomach acid reducing agent like maalox, mylanta, zantac to help decrease stomach acid?
