Have thick saliva, spit brown, tonsil becomes swollen, painful at night, ear pain, headache. Reason?

Hi in a 20 y/o female and everyday i have thick saliva and every morning i have brown spit. I brush my teeth every night. But i notice at night my left tonsil becomes noticeably swollen and painful. I also have some ear pain on the left side(thinking its due to a boil that was cut & drained on 11/11/12 ... not sure???? I also always have a headache on my forehead and in the temple of my head kinda feels like someone is squeezing my head.any insight? Thank you.

your symptoms are more like abscess (pus) situated under the tonsil its called peritonsilar abscess.. or it may be tonsillitis.. in both condition you will have to visit ent surgeon for further treatment.. you may even need tonsillectomy to be done.. dnt try to self medicate with antibiotic since abscess needs to cut and drained
thank you
