low immunity

Having just got over yet another viral illness , i am feeling even weaker than usual. This is getting to me so badly for i seem to go through phases of picking up viruses one after the other. I have cfs/me& fibro each illness has its own symptoms which cause tiredness never mind picking up a virus too

I just needed a moan

hope you all have a good Monday

  • That's awful for you, Kira. Fibro is bad enough on its own, without having various viral things on top of it.

    There seem to be so many things going round at the moment - I'm hopeful that the weather might improve and get people out of doors a bit - that usually makes us all less prone to stray infections.

    I have an irritating cough at the moment, which is driving me nuts, but hey-ho - it's sure to go away soon.

    I hope you feel better before too long.

  • Do you eat natural food, free from additives, unprocessed, containing fat soluble as well as water soluble vitamins?

  • I try to eat healthy , i live in Scotland so there is nothing to worry about regarding drinking water. It seems every time my young grand-daughter visits ( she's at playgroup) I come down with a virus around 2 days later :-( I am very prone to viral illness, have been since i first got cfs/me from having the flu over 10 years ago .

  • Hi there Serendipity , sorry to hear you may have a viral infection, try to get plenty of rest and water, I had that awful Viral infection 6 weeks ago and still have the cough like ladymoth says the coughing drives u mad, try taking some pure honey and lemon, the trouble is I think if the likes of us go down with a virus its pretty hard to shake off, u seem to be always taking 1 step forward and 2steps back, do wish you better serin thinking of you and sending you luv n gentle hugs xx

  • Have you had your thyroid checked? I used to get loads of viruses before I got ME and afterwards until I was found to have Hypothyroidism. I now take thyroxine and, although I still have ME, I don't get viruses nearly as often. Also, get your Vitamin D levels checked as it's common to find low levels in people especially in Scotland.


  • I've been on vitamin D tablets, the doc this morning told me to stop taking them as i hadn't noticed any difference taking them, i've had all the blood tests done so i assume my thyroid is ok . Thanks for your reply
