Singer with left side: blocked ear, crackling ear, ear ache, swollen lymph under jaw & hoarse. Gp reffered to ENT - 6month wait. Any ideas please?
Ear exam: It's unfortunate that a physician cannot or will not examine your ear to see whether it's blocked or the drum is inflamed and/ or infected. In case the eustachian tube in back of the nose is blocked(which would cause pressure to build up in the ear), irrigate your nasal passages with warm salt water and try a decongestant nasal spray for a short time. However, it's best to have an md examine you. ...Read more

ENT wants to shorten uvula, remove enormous tonsils and reconstruct very narrow nasal passages because I can't breathe well thru mouth or nose. Help?

Not an option: Recurrent sinusitis is common, mostly viral in origin and not an indication for surgery. Antibiotics won't help. CT scans are abnormal in 90% of patients with true chronic sinusitis. Evidence suggests that nasal lavage can help reduce symptoms of acute sinusitis. Consult with your physician to see if an allergy to dust mites, pollen or other allergy is contributing to your symptoms. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
