Sore throats and neck pain

I with all the other ailments we get I was wondering if anyone gets persistent sore throats. I also get neck pain. Not the usual muscle thing but one in the front of my neck. I had a lump removed from my throat about 6 months ago and according to the consultant I am okay. I asked him about the throat and neck thing and he just couldn't give me an answer. With this in mind I would like to know if it is a fibro thing or just me.

Many thanks. Try to have a good day and take care.

Bye for now love A x

Ask your GP to do a thyroid function test - thyroid problems are common with Fibro.

Fibro does seem to badly affect our immune systems hence sore throats and quite possibly swollen glands too.
