It's exactly how my nightmare started 24 years ago, but I didn't have fibro symptoms then.

Have they actually registered any infection, do they recognise there is an infection visually?

I get a lot of throat problems my glands come up and I get a dry throat which leads to a sore throat , usually when Ive pushed myself too far or I'm over tired , I suck a lot of lozanges I love ricola you can get them in suger free and they help a lot to stop my voice disappearing completly Ive had bouts of laringitis with no apparent cause I now have worked out its probably linked to the Fibro :roll:
Fibro,PCOS,Asthma,excema and Dyspraxia ( undiagnosed because it didnt exist then )

Hi All

I am just totally amazed at the amount of symptoms that Fibro is suppose to affect people, the list just seems never ending eh:)
Although we all seem to get the aches pains, IBS, burning sensations, fatigue to name a few, I have had a strange throat for
about two weeks.... I can swallow ok and it doesn't feel like a sore throat as such, but it feels like my glands are up, but when
I feel them, they don't *seem* to be swollen... but it kind of feels like my throat is tight... my next door neighbour says it is
part of Fibro as she has had that for three months not so long back , but I said to her, surely this can't be part of Fibro as well?
Anyway one else had this sort of thing? be interested to know :-?
Also I keep reading articles that say Fibro is all in ones head... if that is the case, I want a new head :-?
