    Before my car accident, I NEVER got sick. I almost never took even an aspirin. I have had FM for almost 3 years and in those 3 years, I have had the occasional sinus infection. Could count on 1 hand, until now of course.

    In the past 2 months, I have been well for 1 week! I have had a couple sinus infections, stomach bug, double ear infections, strep throat, conjunctivitis, Laryngitis, I still have a cold and over the weekend I got a urinary tract infection! What is the deal??? I am going nuts. I was already sick of being FM sick, but all of this on top of it is just making me insane and depressed. What can I do to help myself? Is there a way to boost my immune system? I can't take much more.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks so much,

    Hi Lanie,

    I am sorry you are feeling poorly. I also have impaired immuned functioning (like many of us.) My holistic Dr. prescribed Transfer Factor Plus by 4Life which is a combination of colostrum and thymus complex + other nutrients. It has helped me, but is quite expensive. I hope this helps. I only log on weekly or so.
