Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have a sore throat. My right sinus and ear are always full. The sore is behind my right tonsil.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Your right sinus is full which indicates that you are suffering from right-sided sinusitis. It will create a post nasal drip and eustachian tube dysfunction. Therefore, a sore throat and a clogged ear are likely to develop. It will be better to consult your ENT doctor for a thorough examination. Do a necessary investigation to finalize the diagnosis. Then only the treatment can be planned.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
