Hi libainfo

So sorry to read how unwell you are!. No wonder you feel so weak, having 2 debilitating infections will really take it out of you!. Having had to take antibiotics for the UTI has probably lowered your immune system enough to now have a chest infection.,Cranberry Juice can be good for urine infections and for preventing them. If you get more antibiotics from your GP for your chest infection it might be worth you taking Vit c and Zinc to help your immune system recover and make you less prone to winter bugs!.

Good luck when you see your GP and I hope you feel better soon. Take CareX


Poor you, remember that an infection in normal people makes them feel ill but for you with having two quite quickly you will be worse. You need to rest have bloods done you may be in a flare. You will improve again I promise but get people to understand, not easy but it's the only answer. (Sorry didn't mean to say you weren't normal you know what I mean). Good luck. Hugs. Xx
