Hi, I'm sorry to ask so many questions, I just don't know what is happening to my body at the moment, and whether I should be asking my GP to look at other causes.
I keep getting dreadful throat infections, I'm just finishing up a course of antibiotics for the worse bout of tonsilitis I've ever had. My voice is so raw and croaky all of the time, and this damn dry mouth isn't helping. I've been using biotene gel for the last couple of days, and it does give short term relief. This morning, I've woken up with my throat hugely inflamed again, so painful, and mucus in the back of my mouth (sorry, I know that's grim). I've had a post nasal drip for a couple of years, so constantly swallowing, and feel like my throat is blocked.
My GP doesn't seem interested, because I have fibromyalgia, I guess he just sees it as me being run down and prone to everything, but I feel so ill! I can't go on like this! My bloods (T4) are only minimally changed, so I don't know whether these symptoms could be thyroid related? Does anyone else get this? When people say they felt dreadful before treatment, what exactly did you feel like? Tired, or ailing? Thanks x
