User :   could that add to the headaches on the right side?

Doctor :   You should not be as these fade in weeks of time
User :   but my doctors are telling me an ear infection as bad as the one i had takes a lot of time to completely heal
Doctor :   actually all these ENT infections take time to clear off
Doctor :   that is why most persons with ENT conditions have some kind of anxiety about their medical condition

Doctor :   Ok
