Nice to meet you
Have you been treated for allergies/acid reflux?

This is a common cause of this
it all started when i started partying hard, i was ok for a good 2 years after the oporation to remove the tonsuls

i used to, i stoped
5 years ago
iv also stopped drinking as this seems to triger it
not that i can really feel
i get the start of illness as in sore throat after sleep
ie it starts first thing in the morning
you lay down all night and the acid comes up into the throat
then depending may last a couple of days
this is classic acid reflux
I recommend you get on omeprazole 20 mg daily
why would i get white spots?
so would the fever cme from that?
it causes inflammation
ok so why would the specialists not spot this ?
I have no idea.
It's hard to diagnose and you have to take a good history
many doctors don't take a good history
ok so where do i get the mediacation from?
it's over the counter
ok so yu dont think its a viral thing that i wont be able to get rid of!
no, I don't.
not at all
ok well ill try anything as this is ruining my life!
its strange because i dot get really ill, i just feel background ill
and a sore throat
try the med
it will help
ok how llong do i take this for?
would this explain why i get what looks like puss in my throat
you might need it forever
pour some acid down your throat an see if you get pus, white spots
so i can by this without a proscription?
ok, i will give it a go
