Hi all, I'm hoping you can help me with a problem I have had for a few years. Back in Januray 2012 I contracted Glandular Fever and was sick for a couple of weeks. Ever since then I have had a sore throat on and off and nothing it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I get frequent mouth ulcers, the back off my throat is almost always red and patchy with ulcers and sometimes I even get the on my uvula.
I have seen my GP about this a year or so ago and was referred to a throat specialist who pretty much told me to wait it out, but it is very frustrating considering it's been over three years. I have also noticed that alcohol seems to make the problem worse, but being at uni I didn't have much chance to avoid it. My general health is relatively good, if I pick up an infection intend to fight it off quickly and don't get that sick. It's just this which is more frustrating than anything. The only other thing I would say is that I do have mild hayfever and always seem to wake up with phlegm in my throat so I'm not sure if this attributes to it.
What else can I do? Any help would be greatly appreciated
