    Hi everyone,

    Remember me, I donated blood 2 weeks ago and after the fact found out I should not have.

    Well, after my blood pressure drop, my FM flared and now I have a cold and I have not been exposed that I know of. All I know is that I've felt lousy ever since I donated. My blood pressure is fine now, but I've been fighting everything else.

    Does this make sense?

    Always Hopeful,
    Marcia

    I haven't donated in 2 years. I developed a really bad case of pnumonia after a week. Dont know if donating was to blame , but not taking any chances. Took 3 months to recover.

    Remember me? I responded to you in your original post a few weeks back.

    It took me over a month to feel well again after I donated. I took iron pills, drank plenty of Gatorade and water. I was very sick 2 weeks after too.
