does anybody else  get up with a throat that feels sore and prickly, and sometimes on my right side of my head it feels as if the nerve endings are tingling.

    Hi Margaret, yes I wake up every morning with a sore/itchy throat because I get post nasal drip. When lying down at night as you breathe through your nose post nasal drip is quite common and also I snore too so another reason for a sore throat. I have had this plys a cough for 3 years now and sometimes it causes my ears to block too. As far as nerve endings are concerned I also  have this not just in my head and face nut every day in my arms, fingers, legs and feet. Unfortunately very common with fibro. Very annoying to say the least. X

    Hi Margaret, I am sorry but no I don't get up with a throat that feels sore and prickly but yes I have had neuralgia which effects the right side of my head where my hair is even sore to touch.  But document your symptoms and be aware of the right side of your head, if in turns into a headache or blurred or double vision it may be a sign of GCA, just be careful.  I am sure there will be more experienced people who  will answer your questions.  I am relatively new to PMR.  Good luck on hour journey.   Pat

      Hi Pat, many thanks for your reply, i have not had headaches, or blurred or double vison, but i have told my doctor this but she seems unconcerned.  I have written all of this in my diary.

      I only started with this in January of this year so seem to panic at everything, i am trying to not get too worked up.
