Immense Pain in Throat

I have a lot of pain in the next around the throat. I have had these pains for a while, they keep coming and going. Suddenly for the past 3-4 days it's increased. I can feel a small ball kind thing near the Adams apple, like a clot or something. If someone has had the similar problem, please advise the best action. Thanks

Drink plenty of water,eat soft foods like cooked cereal, mashed potatoes, soft fruits, yogurt and soft-cooked eggs...give adequate rest to your body..Avoid spicy foods or acidic foods. Gargle with warm salt water. gargling several times a day can help relieve throat pain....you will require antibiotics to clear up infection..Consult nearest ent specialist they will do the needful.
