Is there a clue in this about what's making me ill the rest of the time? I know it sounds daft, but it hasn't been a one-off thing. It happens nearly every time I get a heavy cold. It'll be very bad on my stomach just as im about to get sore throat, runny nose etc. But then when the cold really kicks in, my stomach behaves as if it was almost normal! Minimum pain, no diarrhoea or constipation, little mucous. Why why why?
