Not sure if this has been covered before, but here goes, I might be losing it but has anyone with fibro got a cold ? My wife and Son have had a terrible cold for 3 weeks.......I haven't had one for about 6 years..... Which is the.same length of time that I have had fibro..... coincidence ? .....Explanation ? My theory is that fibro is triggered by a virus, which would probably be killed off properly if we were still given antibiotics when we have a heavy cold/flu. I would love to hear your take on this matter. If I am right, then there will probably be an epidemic of people with fibro developing at this time. Could it be that simple ? Any Doctors out there with fibro ? please let me know your thoughts.
