I am not doing well at all. My face is flushed and my temperature now shows 99.7 F. I have been having episodes like these - on and off - for about four years now. When I told my GP, I was sent to an infectious diseases specialist who did an extraordinary amount of tests on me. He agreed that I was pretty sick (he wrote that I have a systemic illness) but could not help me and sent me back to my GP. I have been dealing with a sore throat since November 2005. My GP prescribed a mouthwash (nystatin, hydrocortisone, Benadryl) to help relieve my razor blade throat. It does not do much for me. I can't take this anymore. Each episode makes me more tired. Can anyone tell me why I have peaks of temp and chronic sore throat? What can I do to get better?
