    Hi laura240776

    I seem to get worse with my depression/anxiety when I have Tonsilitis. I don't know if it's linked.

    My anti-depressants seemed to stop working when I got ill with Tonsilitis and Quinsy in 2015 so I had to try something else. Maybe speak to your GP.

    I hope you get advice and help.
