This should be one reason why I preffered quit for some time to eat sausages containing some garlic. (I still eat sausages but I am more suspicious about them now.) Garlic has also an effect on the immunesystem in respect to lower nitric oxide production.
Anyhow, I am not concerned about fungi that I wouldn´t get rid of as I felt one time already quit nice from eating almost no sugar (and not much manganese). So I realy hope to reestate this. But on all this complicate issue questions remain.

Re-upping this thread ---
Do you get sore throats?
I had a busy week last week and I was marveling at how good felt. Then this weekend - BLAH -- my throat is sore but it's not red in side like a sore throat with a cold.
I don't know if it's :
-Muscle tightness/pulled muscle in throat
-Acid Reflux
-Post Nasal Drip from Allergies -- my eye is kind of drippy leaky too
- Burned throat from hot drink. (top of mouth below the front teeth have that burned feeling so presumably the throat would have gotten burned too?
General ME/CFS throat from overdoing things last week.

Note I haven't been around people except vaccinated husband who is only around people when shopping and then fully masked and staying as distant as he can. So it's unlikely my throat is from the dreaded thing but of course I'm nervous about that.

I sometimes get a sore throat with my allergic post nasal drip. Same before and after ME/CFS. I don't seem to have any ME/CFS related sore throat. No swollen glands either.

Just really horrible PEM, fatigue, orthostatic intolerance, cognitive dysfunction and muscle and joint pain.

any of these sound like good candidates to me!

Most of the time, the ME throat is distinctive and I know thats it.

However, when I was on my trip to see my daughter, and awash in continuous PEM, on several occasions my throat was so bad I decided I must be coming down with a cold- and I take these chinese dont' get cold pills.

It never was a cold.

all possible....

in my case, ME is a condition of severe dryness in the body.

When things are dry, the body does not flow.

this severe dryness induces any number of symptoms- my throat is dessicated. As are sectors of my tongue.

I take moistening herbs which generally help the condition. But if I talk to anyone for any significant amount of time, I have Strep level throat.

That's a great point.
I'm always dry as a bone too (except my drippy eyes) even while living in the wettest place on earth.
I'm quite sure my thyroid is in shit shape but I haven't had it checked for 15+ years.

My eyes too....

Mine experience a range, mostly they "pour" constantly, sometimes they dry out nearly totally.

Its one of my more debilitating symptoms complexes.

Oooh, I thought I was the only one with drippy eyes! Or I should amend. Drippy EYE. It's mostly my left eye that drips. Screwy Booble.

its MOSTLY my right (both do it).

My RIGHT- corresponds with that simple fact that the right side of my body is more sick than the left. Consistently so.

And I could demonstrate collagen breakdown on my right side is further progressed.

OMG I thought I was nuts thinking how my left and right sides of my body seem to be so different.
