International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Anyone else ever has epiglottis swelling? Also, anyone that has had CFS a long time had the sore throats go away after awhile and then return?

    My throat gets sore every time I overdo it. It's one of the warning signs that I need to stop and rest before things fall apart.

    I have had episodes where the soft palate and the tissue at the back of the mouth & into the throat started to swell. I don't know if the epiglottis became swollen too.

    I don't know if it's the same thing. With me it was a sort of slow, steady process. Sometimes taking am extra, different type of anti histamine & sucking ice cubes stops it but at others I've ended up in A&E.

    It was worse when I first became ill but occasionally still happens & tends not to be quite so severe now.

    Never really found a trigger. I reckon it was maybe a cumulative effect from a couple of different mild allergies affecting me at the same time.
