Hi there
I have been extremely worried about my ear recently that it has been feeling full on and off and I have been feeling ill , hot and generally under the weather. I have been referred to an ent specialist but not for a month.
Something else happened last night in that my girlfriend stayed last night and she said I was snoring like she has never heard before. I only snore mildly normally. Any advice on what it could be I am worried ?

You will need to take it for at least 2 weeks.
