For the last 8 years or so I have had recurring tonsil problems. It seems like it is triggered by stress and lack of sleep. (finals in college, work deadlines, etc.) It starts with a sore throat, then I check my tonsils and sure enough they are beginning to get white spots on them. I then get a bad fever. In the past all I had to do was gargle salt water and that seemed to cure it. That doesn't seem to be working anymore. Every time I take antibiotics it knocks it out very quickly. I had the worst case I have had over the 4th of July where my tonsils were turning black/grey.
Here I am about 1 month later and it is starting up again. I am getting a little annoyed. I am 29 years old, 5'10 155lbs in great health other wise. I do triathlons, workout daily.
Any ideas of what could be causing this? Allergies? Immune problems?
