Sore throat, pins and needles feeling, sound in ear

hi, i had a cold for 2 weeks, went away and woke up one day with a sore throat , then it seemed like i still had a cold. i finally felt better for 3 or 4 days. yesterday my throat started hurting again, but it was a different feeling, not like my typical sore throat. this time it feels like pins and needles. its not very painful, just kind of uncomfortable i also can hear a swishing sound in my left ear when i lay down or yawn, but usually only in morning

ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi, there seems to be retained focus of infection and this usually occurs due to retained infection in the tonsillar crypts. Use an antiseptic mouth wash regularly after meals. Take non spicy, non oily food and avoid excessive tea, coffee and junk food. If still problem persists, go for a throat swab and culture sensitivity. The ear complaint seems to be because of Eustachian tube dysfunction and mucolytics with nasal decongestants helps in this. Regards
