I'm a 21yr old female and since jan 2011 i'v had reaccurant tonsilities. I'v been on 15 anti-biotics this year alone for it. Woke up yesterday morning and have it again. I don't want to go to the doctor because all he is giving me is augmenten. It gets rid of the pain for most of the time, but once I'v finished the course it always comes back. Was admitted to hospital in April because the infection in my throat ended up going through my blood stream causing me to be unbelievably sick! Was one of the worst times of my life I tell ya!:( I had an appointment with the ent doctor 2weeks ago and he told me I'll have to get them out. But I hear the waiting list is a few years? I can't suffer the pain anymore, I'v missed an unreal amount of time from work and cant afford to take anymore time off, and i'm not entitled to sick pay yet. I thought it might have been from an sti but I had the tests on my own accord and they all came back clear. My Doctor has never offered me a "strep Test" or any other test for that matter. I'm getting really worried now that it might be something more dangerous like cancer. If anyone can shed some light on this please do, i'm at my wits end here! Thank you, Niamh
