My son 2yrs, 8mths is booked in to have his tonsils and adenoids out on the 18/5/07. His symptoms are: consistently suffers from sore throats, has problems eating big pieces of food, dribbles especially in sleep, snores loudly, very restless sleeper, sleeps on his back with his head tilted upwards and makes horrible loud snoring noises, heavy breather, very naughty during the day - some days worse than others depends on his night, wakes 3 to 4 times a night.
He often gets middle ear infections along with his tonsilitis.
Surgeon did not recommend to have the sleep study completed to confirm that he needed them out due to his history and when he looked down his throat he could not believe how enlarged his tonsils and adenoids were.
Sorry to ramble - for your own peace of mind I recommend you get a referral from your local GP to see a Ears, Nose & Throat specialist.
