    Hi,

    I suffer from my throat being continuously sore, I get tonsilitis frequently and my throat is continually infected. My ENT specialist says it's being caused by acid spurting up from my hiatus hernia and I should have an op to fix it. But, I've heard that continual sore throats are a symptom of FM. ????????
    Anyone have an idea?

    Hi -

    The mono virus -- many of us with CFS had....it causes swollen lymph nodes and sore throat. I'm not sure if that's the type you have, but the swollen glands are common.

    CFS -- our bodies are having difficulty fighting viruses -- so the maladies can come in many different forms.

    Are you overweight? That can cause Acid REflux-- and irriation in the throat.

    Also -- lack of the proper probiotics to digest foods can cause acid buildup in the stomach - and push it up into the throat area -- meaning you would not be digesting your food properly or fast enough.

    Just a few ideas. Hope this helps.

    When I was at my worst I use to have sore throats and colds every week. Sounds like your may be a little more serious in terms of infection, but a good remedy for bacterial infections in the mouth and throat is Goldenseal herb. Take two dropper fulls in a little bit of water, then gargle and rinse the mouth, then swallow. Do this three times a day for a few days, then just once a day. You should see results pretty fast. It's good for any infections in your body also. Its also very antifuntgal and will benefit your body, lungs and urinary tract. This is one of my favorite herbs.

    You would probably also benefit from a teaspoon full of Slipper Elm bark powder with a glass of water, once or twice a day. This should help with problems of acid reflux. Something for you to google up on the net and investigate...good luck.

    Lots of C
    Garlic
    Echinacia and Goldenseal

    Digestive Cleansing ----
