    get those blisters at the back of my throat. After them irritating me for weeks they fall off. Do yours? I know with fms your more prone to yeast and you can get them in your mouth. If your concerned see a doctor. My mom has fms as well and she gets them as well. She has seen throat specialists, tried different medications and no results. Guess it's another distribing symptom.

    about blisters, but I have post nasal drip permenantly & when I have had it bad for a long period of time the passage between my nose & throat bleeds. Not fun, the first time it happened I was SOOOO scared :(

    They sell a natural saline solution nasal spray here. It will loosen the debris in the sinus cavities so you can blow it out. Right now, it is thick and draining down the back of your throats.

    Do not use Ocean or any of the other sprays sold in grocery stores. They contain a preservative which irritates mucus membrames. You can make your own solution at home with distilled water and sea salt.

    Mist, those bumps are most likely ganglions, but have them checked out.

    Love, Mikie

    No mine does not fall off, they stay there the back of my throat is always red. But the doc says it looks normal. I dont understand that. The blisters are white and there are like millions there so tiny. :(

    Its not fun at times, because even my tonsils seem to swell. I had a ears, nose, and throat specialist take x-rays of my sinus cavities and they were fine.

    Didnt know about the yeast.. Glad to know that though!

    Its very irrating I agree...

    Sincerely,

    Misty

    I know what you are talking about blisters in the back of your throat. I get them also. If my throat gets sore or scratchy, which it does often, I get red and blistery. My tonsils are also huge and I swell. I thought of having them removed. It is supposed to be a harder surgery for adults than children. I think it would (or may) solve my sore throat problem, couldn't hurt. My lymph nodes will also get really sore. Especially under my arms and breats.

    About 3 years ago I had an unexplainable swelling of lymph nodes in my neck and armpits. They were at 2 cm which is the mark of concern. My doctor ran every test under the sun -- from Lymphatic Cancer, Mono, HIV to toxoplasmosis. Nothing. They still do not have any answer for it. They eventually went down to below 2 cm but not back to normal size -- they are still enlarged.

    I used to get the white pustules on my tonsils and the back of my throat when I was younger. I also had chronic strep throat all through my teenage years (4-5 times a year). I had what they called "kissing tonsils" -- they were so big normally that when they got infected they would actually touch each other. Finally, after years of begging, the removed my tonisls at age 20. And YES, they kept saying no because it is "more dangerous" to perform a tonsilectomy on adults as opposed to children. And YES, it was completely horrible!! It took me almost a month to recover. I did not want icecream -- it was too painful. I'm really glad I had it done though. I haven't had strep since (I'm 34 now) and hardly ever have any problems except an occassional sore throat.

    All four of my children when they were little, got what is called "thrush"---it made little white sores in the throat and mouth. They treated this with mycostatin, if I remember, correctly. It did the trick in no time. Thrush is apparently a yeast infection. I have always had chronic yeast infections due to the prophalactic antibiotics I have to take for my kidneys. Anyway, the doctors said the nursing kids were getting this yeast infection from me.
    Perhaps this is why the swollen lymphs and white spots--a fungal infection? Just a guess, I would certainly have it looked into.
