So I had an ordinary mild cold. On day 2 my nose/sinuses got so congested I was struggling to breathe and speak. Pharmacy meds made no difference so they advised me to get an urgent appointment. Turns out I had both sinus infection and chest infection! Quick development! My joints have been even more painful and spongey feeling. Question is - do RA or meds (hydroxychloroquine) make a cold develop in this way? And do your joints flare with a cold?
I've had a compromised immune system in the past, with chemo. But then I was given lots of care and warning. But then, aren't I meant to have an overactive immune system??
