sore throat and cold ?

Postby izzymoo » Wed Dec 07, 2011 7:35 pm

Hi, i often get the feeling of a sore throat and like im getting a cold/fluey feeling. Sometimes it only lasts a couple of days then goes but makes you feel lousy at the time. Does anyone else get this sort of thing? Also a lot of cattarh which seems to irritate the sore throat feeling. :(

The coldy/fluey feelings are part of FM izzy, at lot of us are affected by them. For me, they tend to be worse just before I'm floored by a major flare :facepalm: :facepalm:

I get the same symptoms of Fluppy. I get the "oh no, i'm getting a cold" feeling just before a FMD event hits. I get recurrant tonsilitis, and most colds I get go straight to my throat. A very generous (!) person shared their cold germs with me about 4 weeks ago, and I'm still coughing and aching!

Hi there,

I get this fluey feeling regularly. Usually if i've done a few jobs around the house or simply just preparing a meal. I get a low grade temperature. Headachy and swollen glands in my neck. feel exhausted! I generally feel quite rotten with this as it lasts for the rest of the day. Always feel better the next day. I've had this for years but i never had it so i could get into see the dr with it. Now i know it's part of FM. Answers alot of questions now.

Hi. Yes, I have had this feeling quite a few times and since being dx with FM now realise it was a symptom of it! It makes you feel so awful and sort of in 'limbo' like, as many say, you're going down with the 'flu, it's horrid! Gentle :grouphug: Cherry x

Hi
When i get sore throats i find they last for weeks, it always takes me a long time to recover from coughs and colds. :roll:

I find if I am over tired ie up early, running all day, in the evening I feel sick. Now it is cold/flu season and I'm sitting here on the couch with a runny nose but in the summer months if I push myself too much I get sick as well.

Are you perhaps doing too much?

I take an immune system builder twice daily l-lysine and it really helps.

Feel better :)

I had a sore throat for 3 months. GP referred me to an ENT specialist (still awaiting appointment) but now it's all cleared up. Had a sore tongue for a year and a half but that's ok at the moment. Rheumy said he sees lots of patients that has the sore tongue and throat thingy. He said that its because you're run down with the pain, lack of sleep etc.

Hey, i am glad i found this i seem to get the exact same thing before i get my worst pains through my FM (well undiagnosed) As i am new to the idea of flare ups i am not so sure exactly what can happen with them.
I myself get swollen glands, feverish usually at night and the cold/flu symptoms which come and go seemingly at random.
Also do you all find the winter brings on not only the main and worst of the FM symptoms but also all of the other symptoms to?
Strange old thing this, seems the immune system is repressed a lot?

My throat has been sore for over a year doctor looks at it says its red but looks healthy. I have the feeling I need to clear my throat. Doctor gave my some gavisgon to take he said it could be silent reflux burning my throat it has helped a little bit it numbs my throat when I take it.

I'm just recovering from a cold, and this afternoon my throat got sore again. That scratchy feeling you get before a cold sets in. The first time ever I'll say this - I hope it's Fibro and not a cold! :yikes:
