Did anyone have Quinsy as a child?

    I was the only person in my family of 8 siblings that suffered from this illness and I have now met 3 women with fibro who also had it.

    I NEVER had the energy to do sports like my sisters or swim like them.

    I was taken to ER a couple of times when I collapsed on the bathroom floor due to bowel problems..........I now wonder if Quinsy was the cause of my fibro????

    I have always had lots of infections in my life ....from getting my ears pierced when I was 12 and having severe painful spots all over my ears......to insect bites that swell so fast and are filled with pus.....also recurring horrendous abcesses around my vaginal and anal areas.Throat infections that are so bad that I cannot eat and coughing up pleghm makes me cry!!!

    My doc just says I will always be prone to getting infections so I use loads of garlic,ginger and spices to try to stay healthy.

    Anyone else???
