You probably have chronic tonsillitis.which can account for the ear fullness and ringing toodue to frequent ear infection frm this.It may be advisable to get a Tonsillectomy done.the small recurrent ulcers can happen to anyone..they require only Bcomplex and some local application of a gel like dologel.
