WTF. why are my tonsils swollen?
so...

I'm 20 years old, 5'8", 125lbs.

I haven't been able to hear out of my left ear for like the past 5 days.

my tonsils swell up and like i think it blocks that drain tube or something.

Earlier in the night i coughed non-stop for like an hour straight.

Once in a while i'm getting like an influx of mucus and i keep having to blow my nose.

i've been downing ibuprofen like it's candy and started a regimen of HUMAWORM and Zicam.

I've had hot honey/lemon juice water a couple times in the past couple days, but it only helps for like 45 minutes then it seems to swell back up or something.

Oh, and little white things keep coming out of my tonsils every couple weeks if i suck hard... and then there is a hole left in the tonsil where the little white thing used to be.

I"M GOING TO HAVE A CIG. (I thought i wasn't supposed to get sick if i smoked?)

I don't really know what HUMAWORM or Zicam is, but it sounds like you are suffering from streptococcal angina.

You need to go see a doctor.
You might need antibiotics or an operation.

Re: WTF. why are my tonsils swollen?
You have a condition that I have often had...especially when I was your age and younger. Your eustachian tube is blocked from mucus and/or a swollen tonsil. That's why you can't hear well.

The hole in your tonsil is called a crypt and it's the result of an abcessed tonsil. That white crud is coming from the crypt.

There's no sense in feeling as bad as you feel and you aren't going to get well very fast without antibiotics. You haven't mentioned if you have a fever or not, but if you have one, it's an indication that you have a strep infection. If so, to to the doctor ASAP. Strep can affect major organs. Otherwise, you still need to see the doctor for antibiotics. This will knock out the infection in your tonsil and/or inner/middle ear.

Don't worry too much about an operation. Tonsils are seldom removed these days.

Go to one of those minute clinics at Walgreen's etc if you don't have a regular doctor and lack money. The antibiotics will not be expensive and you will be feeling better in about 3 days.

I hope this helps. And, follow my advice, please.

PS: There is a chance this is a virus rather than a bacterial infection, but you need a medical professional to screen you to make sure the infection is not bacterial. If it is viral, antibiotics won't help. But, believe me, having suffered from this condition way too many times, it's a literal pain and can be dangerous if left unattended.

Re: WTF. why are my tonsils swollen?
If you really want to stop having this (I had it for years growing up), you need to learn about lymph drainage massage, and massage your neck with downward strokes.

Keep your neck warm when you sleep, with a lightweight neck scarf.

Also do not drink milk or eat milk products at night.

I'll bet a dollar you don't floss everyday, you should.

Also, see an acupuncturist, the chi isn't moving around right.

You may also have a psychic condition involving a 'horrible truth' that you are stopping yourself from speaking about. Or a lot of anger that you hold inside (you may not even be consciously aware of it.)

Also, your adrenals are exhausted.

There, twenty years of wisdom and experience.

My throat has always been my 'weak point'. I know that if I'm starting to get a sore throat that I have let myself get run down and stressed. You may need to take better of your sleep program.

Apple cider vinegar, two tablespoons in a glass of water, helps a lot.

Also, oil of oregano will knock it out.

Vitamin D, Vitamin D, Vitamin D

If your immune system was strong, you would have fought this off already.

Take 50,000 IU of Vitamin D for the next 3-5 days, this should clear up most of your sickness. Then 5,000 IU/day for building your immune system & maintaining it.

Last fall when we got home from our annual retreat, everyone in my family was sick except for me.

Here is what I'm taking.

You can NOT O.D. on this stuff. You would have to take 50,000 IU/day for YEARS to O.D.

I like this answer because it doesn't require going to the doctor.

I also like it because it puts faith in the ability of our own bodies to take care of themselves.

If you spend 15-20 min. between 10 & 2 pm with 40% body exposure, you are going to get about 15,000 IU.

BUT, you need to really build up your immune system if this swine flu comes back with a vengence like the 1918 flu did in the fall of that year.

I've been taking 10,000 IU/day for the past 6 months & took 2,000 IU/day for the 6 months before that.

Re: WTF. why are my tonsils swollen?
Here is what you do: (seriously)

Put 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide in each ear. Let it fizz.

Take 2 drops of oregano oil in a teaspoon of olive oil twice a day. Dribble to back of throat so it doesn't 'burn' so badly. Drink lots of water.

Take 5,000 units of vitamin D-3.

And 2,000 units of Vitamin C once every two hours until you feel better.

You may find that the hydrogen peroxide does the most extreme work, making you feel better almost instantly. You can add more HP if you feel it is needed. Your body will evaporate it rather quickly.

The oregano oil is the second most potent. It is the 'poor man's' Sambucal, which also will kill most anything you have contracted, but it is expensive.

Then, for long term care, you might want to research and take MMS.

Happy health!

Re: WTF. why are my tonsils swollen?
Well OP go ahead if you want and stick to not going to the DR. I am in the medical field as well as nutritional field and I believe most things can be healed by taking natural supplements...what you have like the other guy said is a "crypt" in your tonsils. You could very well have strep throat which if left untreated could cause major organ damage. If your tonsils are that swollen, hurt, and your having problems with your ear, get to the dr. You most likely have an infection, could be viral could be bacterial...a quick visit to the dr. won't hurt, don't be stupid!

See an ENT, OP. They can give you anti biotics and Medrol (or another anti inflammatory), so you can drain your ears. You could easily ruin your hearing if it continues.
