Immune System

Postby mynameissharon » Wed Sep 18, 2013 8:55 pm

Hi all, can I ask does FM affect your immune system? I got a really bad bout of cold/flu almost 3 weeks ago - I even had to give in and take a week off work, I was completely poleaxed with it. and I just cannot shake off the head cold that it has left me with? Feel as though it's about to start all over again :-?

Is this just bad luck or do you get things like that worse with FM?

Dont think you get things more severely because you have FM, its not a condition of the immune system.
