I have had this for years, most of the 18yrs I have had me/cfs infact. It has ranged from mild to severe with pus on the tonsills . But the worst is it effects my spine, heart, ears and gives me night sweats. I am going to see an ENT soon and will beg him to take the damn things out. I am wondering how much having them removed could improve my health/ability to function?!.
