Chronic tickle/dry cough is worse, left ear pain. Cyst on thyroid aspirated and drained. What should I do ?

After seeing Pulmonologist (may be exercise borderline asthma but not an issue), Allergist (still only hayfever), Internist, Neurologist (a bit of carpel tunnel on left arm and two herniated discs T-4 and T-5/S-1), ENT (where a throat scope was done, blood work good, t-4 normal) a 3.5cm cystic nodule was discovered left side of thyroid (8 years ago it was .8 in size). Due to chronic tickle/dry cough for 9+ plus on left side only, the cyst was aspirated 2 weeks ago and drained. Note, it was a blood filled cyst. Still waiting for results, but I am confident they are negative. However, the chronic tickle/dry cough is worse and my left ear ache is getting occuring more frequently and my left side of throat is sore. I thought this would all go away after aspiration. I have covered all the bases and don t know what to do now or what it could be causing this chronic tickle/dry cough now ear ache. My left eye will tear up from coughing and nose run. No fever, though at end of the day it feels worse. What should I do?

you are having dry irritating cough, watering left eye, left sided earache.Probably you are having some infection in your nose which is blocking nasolacrimal duct (small duct which connect eye to nose),leading to flow of tear from eye, similarly infection of throat causes obstruction of eustechian tube (small tube which connect throat to ear),leads earache of affected side. thus complete examination of nose throate is must. CT Scan of paranasal sinuses may be helpful.
