I'm just getting over a nasty bout of tonsillitis, my tonsils are generally quite large and i used to get it all the time as a child. I haven't had any for about 10 years (i'm now 32) until last week. I had a temperature and aches and pains, one night my uvula became swollen, so much so that it along with my already inflamed tonsils almost blocked my throat and i had problems breathing. It shrunk back down during the day, but that night i started getting sinus pressure in my forehead and that night i developed an ear ache with a lot of pressure. Now there is fluid trickling out of my ear and i have muffled hearing. I still have the remains on infection in my throat and slight congested sinus'. I'm currently completing a course on antibiotics. My GP thinks i might have a perforated ear drum, can you give me any advice?
