That is why i put my finger down my throat to feel the back of my tongue
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

I want to see an overall picture of your throat.

I don't need to see the tonsils themselves

just the mouth and palate.

If you are unsatisfied with my initial follow up question, I would be happy to opt out for you.

Just let me know :)

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
