My throat is alwways sore and dry after sleeping my tongue is always stuck to the roof of my mouth. I do think this is the amytrptiline though. Sometimes eating sharp foods eg crisps, crusty bread hurts.

I suffer from a dry mouth, swollen tongue, ulcers inside my cheeks and a gum abscess which varies in size. (Call me 'Lucky')
However, unlikely as it seems, for some miraculous reason, I don't take sore throats.
I know Difflam is a good gargle for throat infections. It also has a pretty good local anaesthetic in it too. Its worth a try and can be bought over the counter.
Hope you find something that helps. Good luck.

If you have Myofascial Pain syndrome with your Fibro, there's a good chance the fascia is acting up in the throat area, causing a constriction. However, this type of symptom should always be reported to your doctor, as thyroid problems and other things can also create this feeling.

Good remedy for sore throat

Hi yep get sore throats all the time and have tried loads of conventional stuff... what works the very best though is a teaspoon of dried sage in an inch of boiling water, let the water cool, sieve off the sage and gargle. It doesnt taste too bad, a bit like stuffing! and it really does seem to help
Take care
