Ok, been told I have fibromyalgia, some people say its related to the immune system some say not. Not sure if I'm a classic case. My latest problem is a chronic cough that turned out to be cough variant of asthma. Stays well in control with the lowest dose of advair, but if I get an upper respiratory thing forget it , the cough is unrelenting, my breathing can become compromised. So far its been about 3 months since the last one. Now I seem to be on some kind of cycle with sore throats. I've had strept at least twice this year and several sore throats that seem to be viral. I run a low grade temp, feel a little off, fades away. Then about 2 weeks or less I have another sore throat and low grade temp. Last time I had them check my tonsils and they said it was only my glands were swollen. I just can't stand this chronic cycle and my husband has no tolerance for me saying I'm not feeling well. I have a child too. I've been always tired for many years, so I guess I need to read more about chronic fatigue, but if any of this sounds familiar, please advise.

sorry that you are not feeling well. Have you been tested for Lyme disease? NH is an endemic state for Lyme and I do know several people from NH that have Lyme and they do have sore throat problems, My son and I both have Lyme and frequently get sore throats, and he has had strep throat at least 5 times. When we initially went to see his lyme doc, I didn't even mention strep, or the sore throats and he still did a strep test because it is so common in Lyme. You can go on the lyme board and look at the symptoms, fatigue, swollen glands and low-grade temps are major symptoms also. And most people with lyme were initially diag. with fibro. There are several Lyme Literate MD in NH, they are listed on the Lyme board. Sarah
