Hi all I just wondered if anyone else has trouble recovering from colds and infections. If I get a cold I could knocked out for over a month. This year I've had quite a few colds, tonsilitis for three months and a virus that lasted two months. I get left with a headach, glands up in my neck and exhausted. I've had all the blood tests. I've been exhausted because of depression and got out of it by working out. But while my anxiety and depression may have caused my immune system to be crap, I'm not well enough to work out - if I try the physical symptoms are worse. Seems all the doc can do is tell me go take paracetamol, vitamins and zinc. I feel like I'm 60 rather than 36, I shouldn't be this sickly. Any advice or empathy would be much appreciated x
