Sore throats

Hi every one I was just wondering if anyone gets repeat sore throats. I'm getting them once a month at the moment at it worries me or could this just be a random thing or thyroids. Sorry for the random question but wasn't sure who else to turn to. H x

I have had a sore throat that comes & goes for a few months. I'm not sick though. It seems like my throat is just really dry. I have also had a dry mouth & eyes. Sometimes when I am at work and can't take a drink of water my throat gets so dry it sticks & I start to gag lol not sure if it's the same with you. It's always something random lol hope it isn't anything serious.

It could be thyroid but more likely could also be a sign of Sjogrens which is well known to run with Hughes. Do you also get dry eyes by any chance?

Hi there, yes I get those all the time, in fact I have one at the minute, not good but I find hot lemon works for me. I do think it is from the thyroid but am not sure. tc.

I never get sore throats, not had one for around twenty years... however if someone around me has one, I have the most diabolical reaction to it, a full flare of everything, if it has strep it it... that just about does me in. Mary F x

Do you have enlarged lymph glands in your neck concurrent with the sore throats?

Yeah I think mine might be thyroid I'm having a test for it next week so will soon find out. And no I don't have enlarged lymph glands not that I can feel any way. H x
