There is a tube (Eustachian tube) that connects your ears to nose (precisely nasopharynx) that maintains pressure between ears and nose. During nasal infection (cold, pharyngitis or tonsillitis) the pressure is disturbed and that is the reason why i are getting this pressure sensation. If the infection is treated succesfully then this pressure sensation usually subsides on its own. If ur tonsillits has been persistent for last 1 year, kindly consult an ENT specialist (you may require tonsillectomy)
