I've had it, it can be painful. Your tongue will look white because of the thrush plus it will be red and you'll experience mouth pain. I got a medication from my doctor for it it's called Nystatin Oral Suspension USP. Mine was caused due to being on antibiotics.

I just have some thick white towards the back of my mouth, feels like I have a hair in my mouth, does this sound like thrush? I haven’t had antibiotics though.

Do you have a picture? My entire tongue was covered and I had pain followed by loss of taste. I would try to gargle using salt water or brush your tongue and see if that helps. This is just a suggestion not medical advice.
