Hi all
 
I went to my GP yesterday I see him every 3 months due to chronic pain etc for some other issues.  When having the exam he noticed both of my eardrums were swollen.   He didnt opt to give me anything for it.  Is that normal?  I knwo I get hay fever and this is the worst time of year for me he noted how much PND I was having and he noted it was "draining everywhere" he also noted my lymph nodes felt "off" but they were not tender to me

If you're not in any pain from it, it's probably from fluid build up. Try a decongestant to open them up.

Thanks for the tup I will have to go and buy some. I know lately at night I am having issues with PND then waking with dry sinuses and when I blow my nose in the morning it is bloody.

Get some saline solution to wash out your sinuses, too.

I do have the sinus rinse (like the neti pot except I squeeze the bottle)
