I had VERY bad wax build up and ear infections almost every week. I had step throat ALOT!!!! EAR INFECTIONS AND STREP THROAT WERE VERY COMMON IN MY CHILDHOOD!!! I got my tonsils out when i was 5 and that reduced it alot but i still had it often about 2wice every year. Since I have been treasted not once have i had it. I am 13 now.
I went through the same thing as a child. Severe ear infections (which are some of my earliest childhood memories)... and I snored since the day I was born. I had a tonsilectomy/adnoidectomy when I was 4. Throughout my childhood (about every other year or so) I had very bad strep throat infections.
The first time I saw my Rheumy (@USF - and he believes in LD - yeah!) he asked me all kinds of questions about my childhood illnesses. I also have a very mild form of Ehlers Danlos - which just means I have hyper-extension in some joints. The doctor said I was the "perfect host" for LD to take hold. Yeah for me, I'm a perfect host - haha!
