Pharyngitis Reoccuring

Every year, at least once a year, I get pharyngitis. Most of the time it involves just a loss of voice with no other symptoms where other times I get a bacterial pharyngitis.

There seems to very little that triggers it but the doctors just shake their heads and give me anti-biotics when I need them. I am thinking that the reoccurence could be something that I should be worried about. I have a blocked eustashian (?) tube and have a grommet in my ear. I also often have a post nasal drip and sinus pain but my ENT specialist is not too concerned - should I get a second opinion?
