1. Wondering...whether the sore throats caused by CFS is accompanied by excess mucus. I get sore throats, having to spit up mucus, no coughing, fevers etc sometimes with nausea because of the mucus. 2. Anybody experiencing appearance of bruising? I call them blood spots, because they surface without any 'injury' or 'reason'. The dr keeps telling me dont worry but they just seem to b always there!! annoyingly so!
