Don't know who you are or why this thread is up but I found it interesting enough to reply so I hope it's not a waste of time.
I'm just replying to a thread that I happen to come accross. http://www.bio.net/bionet/mm/neur-sci/1996-July/024600.html
It just so happens that I have regular colds and always have done since I was little. I'm going though a pretty bad one at the moment and everything seems to be linked to my nose, throat and ears. I'm already partically deaf and I'm also dyslexic.
maybe you can get back to me.
