Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If you have chronic sore throat and you have been feeling low for almost 2 years and all other tests are normal, then you should test for EBV infection or infectious mononucleosis. Another possibility is tuberculosis. Chronic streptococcal infection (can be known by a throat swab) causing bone and heart disease is a possibility too.
Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
