Hey everyone.  I have a question for those of you who suffer with this symptom of the disease.  Way back when I had my first big "crash" from CFS, it all started with a sore throat - then what I thought was a cold/flu and lasted for months.  Now, since I understand what I have - last night I started to feel my throat begin to be sore - then it kept me up all night - scratchy, burning and LOTS of pain.  I had my tonsils out when I was 18 due to chronic tonsillitis but have had strep since then.
 
I have a big evaluation coming up Friday that I can't miss and my question is - when I looked this morning my throat was really red and a bit swollen with some bright red areas that almost looked slightly bloody but not sure.  I called the doctor but haven't heard back.  My armpit glands are constantly swollen and painful but my neck ones are a bit now too.  Is this just the common sore throat/pain that's associated with this disease that you all experience? It's so painful even my pain meds aren't touching it (tramadol and Norco).  I'm doing lots of water and Halls but man I'm hoping this goes away - I'm also hoping it doesn't turn into a huge crash again ( I couldn't even get out of bed for at least a week and a half that time). 
 
Just wondering if this sounds familiar to anyone?  Thanks in advance

Thanks alwayssick - I did have an ANA test and results were normal...all of my tests were done when I was at my best, but because of all of my problems they think there's still some autoimmune connection (especially because I Have a big family history). I do have post nasal drip and occasionally get outbreaks of mouth sores (usually when my dad does - acidophilus helps) and coldsores, although a daily Valtrex has helped TREMENDOUSLY with them. I used to break out all the time because I was constantly sick and I have only had one in 6 months...with me being as sick as I have i was shocked. I previously had a CT of my sinuses and he was sure I had a blockage but it turned out to be swelling so most recently they put me on Nasonex which helped.

The sore throat turned into a full blown cold/virus that's made me exhausted, but didn't hit me like the first time, knock on wood!
