Oli ..I sure hope you're feeling better today.. I've not been here much lately..
Wishing you a speedy recovery if you're still plagued by both..
I used to have tonsillitis all winter it seemed ,when I was a kid. Sinus I still have
to deal with in Fall and Spring.. I'm so hoping I'll get ahead of both this next go around... as you said it can cause an awful ear blockage as well.. makes you act and feel drunk.. or what I would guess being drunk felt like.. as I've not ever been near anything that would make me drunk.(otherwise)
