Coughs & Colds

Postby maxinegrundy » Fri Jul 22, 2011 8:38 am

Hello Everyone
I have been diagnosed with FM a few years ago now.
Do you find that catching a cold or flu type things knock you off your feet ?
Or is it just me ??

Coughs, colds and fluy things do seem to affect us more than they do non-sufferers. When I get one, it seems to take me 3 times longer to get over it than what it did pre-FM.
