    The Back Of My Mouth Is Asymmetrical

    The part of the back of my mouth that's below my uvula is not symmetrical. One flap is smaller than the other and appears to be attached to the back and the other is larger and definitely is not attached. I'm wondering whether or not this is normal, and also if this has anything to do with the fact that I had my tonsils removed about eight years ago.

    Plugged ears

    My ears have been plugged for 5 months with occasional relief by laying flat on my back or with my head between my knees.

Which has a better success rate?

They didn't work, so he was prescribed an antibiotic/steroid rinse. That....

    Clogged Ears after Ear and Sinus Infection

    I was diagnosed with a bilateral ear infection in both ears plus a sinus infection on 11/5. Since that time my ears have been clogged with difficulty hearing. I am now on steroids (4 days) and I feel like my hearing has improved a little but the clogged feeling is not going away. I do have constant post nasal drip, could this have something to do with it? My ENT thinks I have sensorineural hearing loss as they gave me a hearing test at the height of my ear infection and I did not pass ( which I feel....
