Last year in february I got a cold that turned into an 8 week ordeal that even ended me up in the hospital because I couldn't breath. It was the onset to this illness. The last month is the best I've felt all year, which wasn't even 50% of what I am normally. Yesterday I got that feeling of a cold. Today I feel it everywhere, in my chest, throat, etc.. Question: With having this illness do other illness's become worse? I'm so afraid of what happened last year, happening again. Do other illness's cause you to flare? I've been in 10 months of hell already and just when I thought I was feeling better, I'd hate for it to start all over again.
