A few days before 06/25/2008, I had an extremely painful earache. On 06/25/2008, I noticed my right tonsil was severely swollen. I also had tonsil stones (or tonsilloliths) which I have never had before nor had since that day. I went to the local prime care center. The doctor said I had a swollen gland and prescribed me augmentin. I also had a fever at that time. Well I took all my meds, few weeks later tonsil still swollen. Since my tonsil became swollen all I want to do is sleep. When I do sleep I have begun waking up in the middle of the night being very hot. I have experienced trouble breathing in very hot weather and when I clean with strong chemicals. I never had this problem before. So on Aug 4th I went to an ENT who gave me another antibiotic, Clindamycin. So right now I taking these meds hoping everything will be ok. The ENT said if my tonsil doesn't go down in a few weeks to come back. Is there anything I should be doing or asking? I'm just afraid this is something serious.
