Although this is my first post on this site there are some here that will know me as Hampshireman from the Macmillan site.
I have lived with CLL for a year now,had the normal ups and downs that we all suffer at various time's but for the last two weeks I have been laid low with a viral condition known as Bornholm Disease,A nasty bug that attacks the chest muscles,chest cavity and lungs (pleurisy) my Doctor has assured me that its not through anything I have done wrong, but is likely to have been picked up in somewhere like my local pub or from a restaurant..
A compromised immune system really does leave us open to some strange Disease's and I'd never heard of this one before. Is there anyone out there that has suffered with this and if so can you let me know of anything that will help,taking Ibuprofen as instructed has little effect.
