Tonsils or Ears: It sounds like you could be having a bit of chronic or recurring tonsillitis. You could also have chronic serous otitis which is fluid/infection built up behind your eardrum. Either way you need a doctor shining a light in your throat and ears with a thorough history taken of your symptoms...Along with a lengthy questioning about possible environmental allergy exposure.
