I was diagnosed with fibro over 2 yrs ago and every day is different in its self i have my bad days and try my best to cope. However for the last year and half i keep suffering with laryngitis or tonsilitus it either one or the other at 1 point i would get it every month. I went to my GP who refered me to ENT she seemed to think it was a symptom of my fibro. So i attended ENT and had a camera down my ENT and the consultant said everything was fine and i had a lovely voicebox he then proceded to tell me because the voicebox has muscles and fibromyalgia can attack the muscles this can be the cause. He also asked me what work i do so i said call centre op and he advised a job change. I love my job they have been brilliant in supporting me.
Last week i started with a sore throat again and out of hrs dr said it was a viral infection and antibiotics would not clear a viral nor laryngitis. Its got worse over the week so i went back to be seen by a dr who asked me what medication i was on so i told him then his reply was why so many painkillers so i said i have fibromyalgia then he smirked as if to say hypercondriact i felt embarressed and humiliated i am not there to be judged. The thing is when i have always had this it has never cleared on its own i have always been given anti biotics he gave me 9 tablets but told me to wait 24 hours i feel so drained unsupported i am tired off going to the gp as i feel im wasting their time im just a lost cause and have not got a clue what to do for the best!!
