During my mid twenties I had recurrent tonsilitis, but never had them removed. I would periodically get a high fever and throat infection that would last for a week. Saw several doctors who just kept giving me different kinds of anitbiotics. Now in my thirties it has been less frequent, but my tonsils remain to be large and have scarring from the past infections causing food to get stuck in the pits/crevices left behind. I often wondered if that was relative to lupus since tonsils play a part in your immune system. Anybody else have or had problems with their tonsils?
