    Further to my message regarding my sore throat and eye, I went to the doctor today and they said I either had viral conjunctivitis or bacterial conjunctivitis. They think bacterial conjunctivitis as I have an upper respiratory tract infection as well. They have given me some antibiotic cream and also amoxycillin. Not too keen on these as I think it may have been antibiotics that triggered my ME but apparently there is not much else they can do (my eye was starting what appeared to be an ulcer).

    I just wanted to thank you both as I might have carried on suffering it without both of your advice to see a doctor.

    Regards and best wishes

    I am sorry you will have to take the ABX; I know no one likes to take them. Sometimes we have to choose between the lesser of two evils and I think an ulcerated eye sounds pretty evil! Yikes!

    I'm glad you got treatment before it got worse. Take care and rest because infections really take it out of you.

    Love, Mikie
