Do you still have your tonsils? I notice this link clicked on the tonsil area of the website ............
I intentionally linked the page about tonsillitis because I wanted to show the website properly in action. That is what the doctor thinks I probably have and it's nice to read up about it and then see a professional made video on it.
I've been trying my best to work out whether I have any symptoms that would indicate that I have specifically Strep Throat or Tonsillitis. Both illnesses have almost identical symptoms so it's very difficult, even for doctors, to figure out what one you have. It seems 'chills' is used a lot as a symptom for tonsillitis but I haven't seen it used much for Strep Throat, therefore I currently think I have tonsillitis.
And yes, I have my tonsils, apparently surgery to remove them is fairly unusual these days.
