Sorry for so many posts here today! I was wondering if anyone else had this problem. This is the 3rd time I have had a tonsil infection. My doctor doesn't know what it is. My tonsils will become extremely swollen and become covered in white spots. Last night was the worst it has ever been. I almost had more white than tonsil visible. Since then the spots have decreased in number but they're still there. My tonsils are still extremely swollen. The other two times I have gone to the doctor about it, they have done a strep test and both times it has been negative. They have no idea what it is, but they prescribe me a Z-pack (antibiotic for those of you who wouldn't know) and it goes away. Is it caused by the CFS? I didn't start getting it until I began having problems of CFS. Before that when it was just the FM it never happened. I'm so scared they're going to tell me to have a tonsillectomy.
