I am in my late forties and have had all the symptoms of PFAPA for the last 4 years. About 6 months ago I started taking a single 50mg dose of prednisone at the onset of an attack, with great results. However, except for one or 2 journal articles I have not seen any info on this syndrome in adults...so I am wondering if maybe I have something else. I am getting VERY tired of being sick and was wondering if there are any others out there like me.

Have you considered a tonsillectomy?

Yes, I'm in the process of scheduling a tonsillectomy...although I have not seen very much information on its sucess rates in adults. I do think it's worth a try though, based on reults in children.
