Yes, I had that for several months. I did have a low grade fever with it too though.

I've had a sore throat on and off for a long time, often with a low grade fever - but not always. I found that sucking on and eating a whole garlic clove helped me. Totally ancedotal, but if you like garlic, I figure it's worth a try. It seems that having one clove a day has kept the sore throat away if not lessened it.

Do you have "Crimson Crescents"?
----------------

http://www.angelfire.com/biz/romarkaraoke/whento.htm

When to Suspect Lyme - by 
John D. Bleiweiss, M.D.

Excerpt:

. . . Crimson crescents, portrayed as diagnostic for CFS, I have detected in LD where the diagnosis was secure. . . .

===============================

http://www.immunesupport.com/93sum007.htm

Crimson Crescents Facilitate CFS Diagnosis

Excerpts:

. . ."If you get a patient with a sore throat in the office, he or she can have crimson crescents, and the back of the throat is red," Cunha said. . . .

. . . Burke A. Cunha, MD, discovered what he called crimson crescents in the mouths of 80% of his CFS patients. After the word got out, Cunha received calls from other parts of the country. Physicians began telling him that they also were finding the crimson crescents in their patients once they looked for them. . . .

. . . "When we look inside somebody's mouth, infectious disease doctors and internists instinctively go right to the back and look at the pharynx. When they do that, they miss these crimson crescents because they are on the side. People have missed them for years," said Cunha . . .

- Be sure to read the full article. Not just lyme, but also HHV-6 &/or certain strains of Coxsackie B may be involved.

A sore throat has been a constant symptom for me since getting LD. It would come and go or just feel like I was about to get a sore throat. It has improved with treatment.

I am same as sutherngrl- constant sore throat- major symptom before dx with lyme and co, then on and off for weeks at a time with treatment.

Been good lately and hasn't flared for about a month at this point. Hope its gone for good!

I thought a sore throat and pain in the back of the neck was a babesia symptom. Just a thought - something to keep in mind.
