    PLease can someone please help me with this. I have a soon to be 12 year old son who is suffering with sore throat's swollon glands, and high fevers every few weeks. The doc has ran blood work but all is well. anyone know what this could be? This has been going on for about 8 months or so. I was wondering if it could be tonsilitus {spelling}. What do you think it may be? any advice would be very appricatied and I would like to go in with some more advice on what else his doc should do.

    My son had his tonsillis (SP) out at 17. Doctor said he had scar tissue on them. He would get ear infections and sore throats often, before he had them taken out. He is 30 now and has been fine since Have you taken him to an E.N.T? You may want to see one if not. Good luck, Linda

    has your son been tested for glandular fever??My 14 year old daughter has had sore throats and swollen glands gfor several years now.and eventually went to see an ent specialist this summer,He said she has Grotty tonsils and they are going to take them out.She has massive white patches on them and she has had an enormous amount of time off of school.
    She also has massive muscle pains and achyness and is also tired all the time..and today they did alot of blood work tosee if she has aneamia /pernicious aneamia(b12 deficiency)
    they are expecting normal results i really hope she doesnt have fibro but everything is leading to that direction .Hope your son feels better soon.Ps hows your rib pain??I suffer so badly with this too.Hugs Morgana

    thank you for getting back to me. YES I also have the little lumps in my ribs and they hurt if I mess with them but usually only if I mess with them. once in awhile they will hurt for no reason. My sides of the ribs hurt like something awfull as well. It feels as if you are streaching me way to far. I also have the pain below my ribs and that to is just awfull. I also get the pain bellow the breast but it is not as constant and pianfull as the ribs. So do you have lumps anywhere else? I have them in my tummy but they are bigger then the ones in my ribs. I also have them in my boobs and alot behind my knees. well i hope to hear from you soon

    Hi Shannon
    Thanks for replying I have the lumps in my stomach and lower abdomen too I also have them in my arms legs,back,boobs and a couple in my neck....Its hard to know whether they are frommfp/fms or nuerofibromatosis I think they are fm related cos they are in tight bands of muscle and feel kinda like they are on a rope..does that make sense? Some of them feel so painful when i touch them people say that you can massage them out or rub them out.I cannot imagine doing this as I would be screaming in pain.The pain in my boob is a kinda aching pain it comes and goes almost like a burning pain my rib pain is there everyday now though im so worried about it......
    well i hope that you have a gr8 weekend please write soon Take care Morgana

    Hi, so how was your weekend? mine was busy and painfull but I guess we must learn to live like that or we could not go on and be mothers, wives, or friends. I just do alot of praying and believe that is what keeps me going so strong.
    so what do you all have? I have fms, cfs, thyroid disease,tmj and they think something called myfocial something or other. have no idea what that is and really do not care as it is just something else that I am sure is pain related. I also have costochondritus,
    well you have a nice weekend.
    I to have no idea how anyone can touch those lumpy things because when I do I want to hurt the person closet to me. one night I was messing with them and the next day I was asking myself what in God's name was I thinking doing that because I could barley move.

    Hi Shannon,
    How are you??Ive had a painful weekend too my rib pain has been really bad along with arm and shoulder pain mostly on my left hand side everywhere hurts to touch this weekend too..I just feel like crying lol.Does your rib pain ever go away for a few days?? or is it constant??
    I have Fibro, tmj,pernicious aneamia, IBS, neurofibromatosis,and arthritus in my neck and im beggining to suspect that i have myofascial pain syndrome which is somthing I will talk to my dr about .I also have sinus infections,post nasal drip and get heartburn alot....u know all the usual crappy stuff that makes us feel bad.
    I think the worst is this rib/chest pain it just eats away at you.
    have you any plans for xmas??have you your treeup ??my girls put my tree up and it looks well urm pretty psychadelic lol:)but they were doing their best to help mum...I still have some xmas shopping to do so imnot looking forward to that experience ;(have you done yours yet??

    Hi sweetie how are you??

    Hello,
    so how are you feeling today? I feel good but my body feels like someone dumped a pile of lead down my throat so I would be waited down all day. So all I did today was veg out with the little ones and play the game cube. Aw the kid in me...lol.
    My rib pain comes and goes in severity. It is always their but someday's can be very good and they can last for a week and sometimes even two or three. that is very rare though.
    I got all my Christmas stuff up before Thanksgiving. I just could not wait and I saw others in my subdivision doing it so I wasn't about to hold back. I also got all my shopping done. I have five children so I needed to get a jump early and did most of mine off line. Did you get anymore shopping done?
    what is pernicious aneamia? and neurofibromatosis? I have never heard of them before.I also get the post nasal drip. in fact before I knew I had it I went to my doc all nutty and told him he was a piece of shi- and would not know if a patient had cancer even if it were staring him in the face. I had these white patches in the back of my throat and thought they were cancer and well he told me when I get a medical degree I can tell him what I think of his skills because the patches in the back of my throat were that of post nasal drip. needless to say I walked out of that clinic like a dog eith her tail in between her legs and never went back. That was in my hypochondriac days...
    so how many children do you have? what are there age's? boys girls?
    I have five. they are 12,10,4,3,1 and they are 4 boys and 1 girl. my daughter is the 4 year old going on 16 with a smart mouth.
    well I will talk to you soon....
