    Hello,
    I was wondering if any of you get sick beyond the Fibro? I have had a Sinus Infection which took 2 antibiotics to get rid of, and a Bad Bad Cold with in 2weeks of each other. I wonder if it is my immune system and ofcourse some people say" How can you be sick again"?

    I have chronic sinus infections connected to CFS; as for colds, I seem to be LESS susceptable to them (knock on wood).

    If your body is stressed from the fibro (and I assume that it is), your immune system will be weakened and you will be more likely to get sick. That doesn't necessarily mean you're getting CFS. (That seems unlikely, based on what I've read here.)

    It's hard to keep sinus infections under control. Try colloidal silver nasal spray on a regular basis. Hopefully that will keep the bugs at bay. My doctor highly recommends it for this purpose.
