After tonsillitis in June I have had a consistent sore throat that makes me feel as though I am choking, worse with fatigue. Tonsils remain swollen. I have had blood tests that came back negative, although showing glandular fever in the past. ?
Tonsillitis: Infectious mononucleosis is a cause of prolonged tonsillitis and fatigue. The tonsils may remain swollen after the infection has resolved.
