I had a cold and sore throat for a few days, cold went away and so did sore throat but now my tonsils are killing me. They both hurt equally until I woke up last night wth a very sharp pain in my left ear that lasted only a few seconds and now my left tonsil hurts way worse than my right. I can barely swallow now. I thought I was getting better until this happened. What could it be? (Doctors wanted to remove my tonsils when I was young because they were way too big but I refused, I'm 26yrs old now & they're still huge normally but now because I'm sick they're even bigger, the left one is probably twice its normal size)
