I know my daughter needs grommets, and her adenoids removed. And obviously ear infections are painful. But I'm just wondering why she is always so miserable and irritable at night and even sometimes in the day. She is a snorer and I think being congested makes her grumpy but just wondering if having glue ear is actually uncomfortable?

Snoring can create sleep apneoa(sp) so that could be the reason why she irritable and miserable. Lack of sleep. Glue ear used to hurt my little guys ears at night in winter because the air was cooler and thinner. If there is fluid and the cold air hits it, it'll be sore and hurt if that makes sense
The change after having the procedure done was massive in both my boys.

Re: Does glue ear or enlarged adenoids hurt?
My dd had her first set of grommets at 2, when she turned 3 she had new set of grommets, tonsils and adanoids taken out, she is now 10, still snores and still gets major ear inflections but does sleep better at night. Drs say grommets won't work gir her ears she just needs to grow out of it.

I had chronic glue ear as a kid and it's definitely uncomfortable and can also impair hearing (I went 80% deaf before surgery). I'm sure she'll feel much better once she's had the op, good luck with it.
