hi all I’m currently having a flare up of sore throat swollen glands general flu type aches headache and low appetite ears hurt because of swollen glands. I haven’t been in contact with people much recently. Every time I get this I scratch my head as to whether it’s a viral infection or the ME. I used to get it a lot particularly a spell 10-15 years ago when I was still working full time. It was as a result of getting all these episodes of laryngitis/ viral infection that I first reduced my working pattern from 5 to 4 days and this was probably the onset of my ME. Culminating with me discovering I had “CFS” 11 years later after being told by the GP i didn’t have Fibromyalgia because you don’t get a sore throat with that. Anyone else have bad throats I feel like I might have posted this before when I had a bad episode but couldn’t find it here so it could be one I did on PR.
