I am hoping somebody can determine, or have any idea,of a diagnosis for some symptoms my partner is experiencing.
He is 23 years old, and for the past 7/8 years his right nostril has been relatively blocked (he can barely breathe through this nostril).
For the past one year he has suffered from enlarged tonsils. he was diagnosed with tonsilitis and given penicillin, the infection disappeared, but the enlarged tonsils remained.
Now every other week he experiences pain in his ear when swallowing. It is starting to get him down now, and Doctors have not been a lot of help, as they advise there is no need for a tonsillectomy, and explain this pain to maybe an allergy or hayfever (but this cant be for the whole year?)
I am convinced all three must be linked, what do you think?
Another doctor mentioned internal pressure imbalance? could this be a possibilty? id really appreciate any ideas you all have
