Patient

Q: Hey I'm 13 and I have big tonsils that get in the way of my breathing and eating. I've been to 2 doctors and the first one gave me some meds for laryringits and said my tonsil were nothing to worry about then I went to another doctor and they said it's normal to have enlarged tonsils and said my breathing was just anxiety and then I went to pharmasist who said it was just worrying and told me it was fine.
